What is oracy?
Oracy is the ability to articulate ideas, develop understanding and engage with others through spoken language.
Why does a high-quality oracy education matter?
Spoken language skills are one of the strongest predictors of a child’s future life chances but too many children are not given the opportunity to develop these crucial skills.
In school, oracy is a powerful tool for learning; by teaching students to become more effective speakers and listeners we empower them to better understand themselves, each other and the world around them. It is also a route to social mobility, empowering all students, not just some, to find their voice to succeed in school and life.
At Parkend, we are currently developing ways of embedding Oracy into the curriculum using The Oracy Framework.
