for advocacy!

At St. Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, we strive to develop oracy skills through the curriculum, lunchtimes, extra-curricular activities, and the whole ethos of the school.

Oracy can be described as a combination of learning to talk and learning through talk. At St. Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, there is a shared understanding of how talk supports learning and children’s social development. We believe that developing oracy throughout primary education provides our students with vital life skills. We aim to encourage fluent speakers, who are confident to communicate, debate and present in a wide range of situations.
