Bronze Arts Award at Woodbridge Park Education Service

The Woodbridge Park Education Service is a Pupil Referral Service that works with students who have been referred as a result of permanent exclusion from school or for special tuition students who have a Statement of Special Education Needs and for whom there is no alternative provision.

Selected 14 and 15 year old pupils worked enthusiastically with the Positive Arts team over a period of 13 weeks to create professional pieces of graffiti art, whilst exploring social and personal issues through discussion and expressing their feelings on these issues through the artistic skills they learnt. A  group mural in the garden and an individual piece was produced by each course participant creating a sense of achievement and pride and enhanced self esteem. On completion of the course great improvements in Behaviour, Attitude and Attendance were seen in 6 (out of 7) young people who took part.

Congratulations to all the Woodbridge Park students who achieved the Arts Award Level 1 in Graffiti Art!
