Rochdale Connections Trust are working with Kingsway Park High School to raise awareness of healthy relationships.
Students in Years 8 and 9 at Kingsway Park High School are taking part in a series of workshops, delivered by Rochdale Connections Trust.
The sessions, which are being funded by BBC Children In Need are designed to assist young people to make the best choices in their relationships; whilst developing awareness about domestic abuse and learning how to keep safe.
Bev Place from Rochdale Connections Trust said: “They undertake activities that allow them to identify the early warning signs of domestic abuse so they will be better equipped to be able to avoid any unhealthy situation before the relationship develops.
“Last week the students examined online safety, sexting, the law and how it could affect them.
“The workshops are fun and interactive with the students showing great insight and understanding.
“The workshops are run by Geraldine Birtles from Rochdale Connections Trust, supported by Sally-Anne Stott from Rochdale Borough Council Early Help Team.
“Other secondary schools will soon be added to the delivery schedule.”
