Attention UK! Are you ready to create a more inclusive and positive environment for pupils and staff? Sign up now to earn the Period Positive Schools badge!
The badge was designed with young people in Sheffield because they wanted to know where they could go for reliable, accurate and shame-free period talk. By participating in this program, you will gain access to valuable resources and tools to help you teach your students about menstrual health, support those who menstruate…and even those who don’t! By earning the badge, you will demonstrate your commitment to promoting gender equality and breaking down period stigma.

Period positivity is a great way to open yourself up to relearning menstrual literacy… and it’s easier than you think!
But actually… you can’t just say you’re period positive, you know – you’ve got to work at it.
Sometimes folks don’t know that when they say ‘period positive’ this means a specific set of inclusive values and high standards developed through founder Chella Quint’s research and outreach work with young people and communities since she coined the phrase and started promoting it through her hashtag, zines and live events. We ask partners, fans, and those new to this work to agree to some basics. Our ‘red lines’, if you will. That’s why the phrase was coined and the logo and framework designed. We hope you’d like to champion these ideals too, because research shows that this framework helps improve our understanding of periods on many levels and in transformative ways.

The Period Positive campaign and the concept of period positivity started as a phrase coined by former head of PSHE, comedian and education researcher Chella Quint, grew into a campaign, a trademark, a charter programme and a movement. If you’d like to earn the charter mark and apply for a licence to use ‘period positive’, promote period positivity or display the logo, please get in touch via the contact form.
