What does it mean to be a Voice 21 School?
Becoming a Voice 21 Oracy School is a commitment: to transform oracy teaching and learning across our school, enabling all students to access and benefit from a high-quality oracy education.
Oracy is a set of teachable skills that are essential for life and when used skillfully, talk allows pupils to take ownership of their own learning, unlock and deepen their understanding, think critically and build confidence.
We are part of a thriving national network of over 600 schools, who are at the forefront of innovative and impactful oracy practice in the UK.
‘The ability to speak eloquently, articulate ideas and thoughts, influence through talking, collaborate with peers, and have the confidence to express your views are vital skills that support success in learning and life in general.’
