The Red Box project supports pupils through their periods by filling red boxes with free period products. At Harrowgate Hill we are proud to support this project and ensure that our young people have the products they need when they need them.
Period Poverty is a real thing and every year thousands of young people miss out on their education because they cannot afford the products they need during their period.
At HHPS the Red Box is kept in our Inclusion Managers Office (Mrs Cornish) and pupils are informed of its contents and whereabouts during an annual assembly. Our young people, no questions asked, are able to access the red box for a range of period products. We have found this to be an incredibly successful initiative and many of our young ladies access the box every week.
