Oracy is the ability to articulate ideas, develop understanding and engage with others through spoken language.

Over the past three years, St Helen's has worked alongside Voice 21. We believe that Oracy develops students' confidence, articulacy and capacity to learn and as such, oracy runs through all subjects across the curriculum at St Helen's.

We place as much importance on the day to day explorative conversational talk as we do on presentational talk and as such, children gain many different experiences during their time with us.
