I went on to Parklands Primary School to the first birthday celebrations for the Bridge Centre...

The Bridge Centre has a great team of colleagues, led by Alison Enoch,working with children with behavioural problems and it is achieving amazing results and making a real difference for some of our special children. Over the weekend I read the evaluation of their 'Moving On Programme' which touched over 300 young people from fourteen primary schools moving from primary to secondary school this year and again the impact has been amazing!

The Bridge Centre is yet another example of our brilliant provision here in Leeds. Our challenge is how we replicate the provision to reach all the young people who would benefit, all our children whose lives are not as happy, healthy and safe as they might be and around who we need to redouble our efforts to ensure that they are happier, healthier, safer and increasingly successful.
