The DfE have now published guidance on how to access free period products in their place of study for learners at all state-maintained schools and 16 to 19 education organisations in England.

To make sure organisations have access to a wide range of period products in the most cost-effective and efficient way, the DfE have a contract with Personnel Hygiene Services Limited (phs). This allows you to order period products and have them delivered when you need them.

This guidance contains information on:

  • choosing and ordering period products
  • distributing products within institutions
  • tackling stigma

The following websites contain useful resources for schools to consider their own practice in supporting young people who are menstruating and addressing the stigma around menstruation with all pupils:

2020 will mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust and the second world war.

Secondary schools and colleges are eligible to take part in the lessons from Auschwitz (FLA) project, which is open to two post-16 students comprising of two seminars and a one day visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Further information is available on the attached flyer.

This guidance provides governors with knowledge about the statutory moderation processes in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 and information about unnanounced monitoring visits for the phonics check and SATs.

Carers Trust Solihull have been supporting unpaid carers of all ages in the Solihull borough for a number of years through a variety of methods including support groups, events, activities and training to name but a few. On Saturday 13 June 2020 we are hosting a charity ball and our first Carer Friendly Awards 2020!

The awards have several categories and we are welcoming nominations from both individuals and organisations who would like to recognise someone who goes above and beyond for unpaid carers in the borough. I have enclosed a flyer with the list of categories, how to nominate and information about the ball itself.

If you, or your team would like to nominate someone, or are interested in coming to the ball please do contact us on the following number: 0121 788 1143

Alternatively, if you feel that you may be able to help us at the event by being a sponsor so that we can raise funds to carry on with our work, again please call me. Also, visit our website to see the host of things that we do to improve the lives of carers who do so much for their cared ones. Carers are those whose lives are affected by caring for a family member, friend or neighbour who has a physical or learning disability, long term or terminal illness, mental health needs or substance dependency: www.solihullcarers.org

We look forward to hearing from you!
