Mark visits the Orchard programme(July 04, 2012)
Mark recently visited the Orchard programme on St Vincents Road. The Orchard programme brings together schools across Preston in dealing with children who are at risk of being permanantly excluded from school.
Mark was told how successful the programme has been with a 100% success record of children being able to re-enter main stream education after completing the programme.
Mark said "There are many children who need specialised assistance in being able to deal with the pressures of high school. The work done at Orchard and the work put in by the children should be applauded."
