SCHOOL pupils in Tameside are learning how to call out sexist behaviour as part of a new pilot programme to tackle violence against women and girls.

The scheme – which has been commissioned by Tameside Council and developed in partnership with safeguarding leads, commissioners, teachers, parents and young people – is being delivered by the national relationships charity TLC: Talk, Listen Change.

The pilot will run for between eight and ten weeks and will be implemented in ten schools, including five primary schools, some of which have already launched the programme, and five secondary schools aiming to join the pilot this September.
