Argyll and Bute Education Services are committed to ensuring that none of our pupils have to go without access to free period products during the Covid-19 crisis when the usual availability in schools is restricted and when it is more difficult, and indeed expensive, to get products from shops.
Many schools distributed period products from their stocks to pupils before they closed. However, as the current Covid-19 Government restrictions continue, we want to ensure that our pupils’ wellbeing needs continue to be met.
For this reason we have made an arrangement with Hey Girls, one of Scotland’s main providers of period products, that enables you to order from a range of products using a survey monkey link that simply requests your chosen package, school and your delivery name and address.
To order your products please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZDQC8JT. You can then click the packs you need (and it’s ok to order more than one type), enter your details and click ‘done’ at the bottom of the page. Hey Girls will then process your order and post it to the address that you have given. The link will be refreshed at regular intervals to ensure that you can make repeat orders.
As this system is just getting started and given the current delay in some postal service deliveries, please allow up to two weeks for your delivery to me made, although Hey Girls would hope to reduce this in time.
This Hey Girls order form link will also be sent out to parents and carers via text and email. To avoid multiple orders at the same time from the same family, and to ensure that you get what you need , we would be grateful if children and parents/carers could consult with each other before ordering.
Please note that these products are free and are available to children and young people in Argyll and Bute schools from P6 to S6. While the closure of schools continues, you can place an order whenever you need it.
We will continue to monitor the success of this system and will review it when restrictions are lifted and when the crisis is over.
If you need any more information on this system or wish to make any comments please contact Cathy Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
