ORACY AT ESKDALE

Following a period of extensive research and analysis of the possible benefits of a comprehensive oracy curriculum in Stranton School; it was decided this would be a key driver for our new curriculum, as evidence has shown:

  • Oracy supports learning – including developing creativity and critical thinking in pupils.

  • Oracy is vital for social mobility – supporting children’s ability to fulfill their potential in later life.

  • Oracy is good for social and emotional learning – helping children who may struggle to work with or play well with others.

  • Oracy opens doors to opportunity – extracurricular activities such as debating, youth parliament and volunteering bring a wide variety of benefits and opportunity.

  • Oracy is empowering - giving children the skills to develop a ‘voice’ and speak out about things that matter to them.

(NACE – March 2018)

A partnership with Voice 21 will help us in our desire to:

  • Create momentum within Stranton School to raise awareness of the value of oracy

  • Build a whole School culture of talk, across the curriculum and beyond the classroom.

  • Strengthening classroom practice – ensuring all teachers are confident in using oracy as a core pedagogy and drawing upon evidence-based practical classroom activities.

  • Continuously improve our practice using the latest research and evidence on the impact of oracy
