An Islamic school that had books promoting domestic violence has been warning female pupils against using tampons.
The Al-Hijrah School in Birmingham has been branded "shameful" after it sent out the guidance in a memo to teachers.
In the document called "Sex & Relationships Education Policy 2017" leaked to The Sun, the Birmingham school details how it teaches children about "physical, sexual, moral and emotional development".
In one section of the policy, which was adopted by the school in October 2017, where it refers to the teaching of personal hygiene, it states: "Among the various types of pads, tampons may not be appropriate due to insertion."
Quilliam researcher Muna Adil described the guidance as "misogynistic, bigoted, and misinformed".
