70 per cent of pupils in the Uk may not use the toilet during lessons

Im a year 7 pupil, and I feel ashamed. I asked to use the toilet during a lesson while on my period and the teacher said NO!!. This then caused a problem with me bleeding through my school uniform.

I am still getting used to how to deal with my periods as I'm 11 years old, and sometimes I get caught off guard. I was too embarrassed to make an issue in class, so I tied my school jumper around my waist to hide what had happened. I was humiliated, and when I told my mum she told me just to get up and walk out, but I'm too scared as I will get an after school detention.

What i think would help is if there is pass we can get from the school office during our period that we can sign for and use for a week in class to allow us to use the toilet and then hand the pass back after a week.
