Our Oracy Model

In school, oracy is a vital tool for learning; by teaching pupils to become more effective speakers and listeners we empower them to better understand themselves, each other and the world around them. Speaking and listening play a large part in a child’s progress in all curriculum areas and at Meldreth, teachers plan to develop these skills in a wide variety of ways both formal and informal.

We aim to develop and encourage fluent speakers, with rich vocabulary, who are confident to operate in a wide range of situations. Good oracy skills support wider literacy skills; improvement in oracy is also linked to improvements in reading, writing, and overall attainment.
