For Teachers

Talking to teenagers about puberty and periods can be difficult. That’s why we’ve created a FREE range of downloadable resources to help parents and teachers cover these topics.

How to explain periods to teenagers is very much down to how comfortable you feel discussing the subject. but we’ve tried to make it easier for you in this section which is full of help, advice, and resources. You might also like to look at our Myth Buster and Fact File tabs which have been designed especially for young girls, and our Hey Boys! tab which explains the basics for inquisitive young men.

Aimed at Years 5, 6, 7 & 8, this resource can be adapted for either mixed or single-sex classes and used as part of the PSHE or Life Skills classes.

NOTE: The resources do not cover sex education and reproduction.
