Voice 21 Oracy School

Voice 21 Oracy School


This year, as part of a school improvement priority on oracy, we will be a Voice 21 Oracy School. We believe that every young person should leave school able to express their ideas, communicate with confidence and speak eloquently. These vital skills are captured by the word ‘oracy’ which was coined in the 1960s to give spoken language parity with literacy and numeracy. 


Over the course of the year ahead, all our staff will be involved in high quality training through Voice 21 to develop oracy in our school. We are looking forward to using more talk to support learning in lessons, at home and creating more opportunities for our young people to be heard beyond the classroom.
