oracy at avondale

At Avondale Primary School we are working in partnership with Voice 21 (the national oracy education charity) to develop our pupils confidence, articulacy and capacity to learn. High quality oracy education empowers pupils, regardless of their background, to find their voice for success in school and in life.

Oracy Outcomes

At Avondale Primary School, we are passionate about providing the best education for our pupils. We believe that the ability to communicate effectively through language and speech is essential for success in life and work. That's why we place a great emphasis on the importance of oracy in all areas of the curriculum.

We prioritize developing our pupils’ oracy skills through engaging activities and experiential learning. Our teachers provide the guidance and support necessary to help each of our pupils become confident communicators. We believe that our focus on oracy will give our students the edge when they leave Avondale Primary School and enter the world.
