At Cheam Park Farm Primary, we recognise that the teaching of Oracy is essential in the development and achievement of our children across the curriculum. By teaching, modelling and promoting oracy, we develop confident, well-spoken citizens who realise their full potential academically and emotionally.  There is considerable research suggesting that the benefits of oracy skills promote academic achievements and employability as well as enhancing social, emotional and interpersonal skills, including self-confidence, self-awareness, resilience and empathy.  

The impact of teaching oracy to our children:

  • Increases pupil confidence in all areas of the curriculum

  • Improves academic outcomes

  • Fosters wellbeing

  • Gives the essential skills for children to thrive in life beyond school.

  • Promotes social equity
