Drama at the Pupil Referral Unit, Bridgend

Bridgend Pupil Referral Unit

by Ali Franks, Drama Development Worker

We are working in partnership with Bridgend PRU this year to deliver Drama for Emotional Health workshops across Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Working alongside the curriculum with both the fast-track pupils and those on a longer-term programme we are exploring drama through role-play, mask work and drama games and exercises. The partnership feels very successful as we are putting emphasis on building relationships with the young people and building an atmosphere of trust and respect. The pupils are engaging in the sessions really well and showing some fantastic skills and abilities in Drama whilst developing their Emotional Intelligence.
