Our aim at Ernesettle Community School is to develop a positive attitude towards speaking and listening. Oracy is the ability to express yourself clearly and communicate with others effectively through spoken language. It is the strategy for learning to talk and learning through talk. From Nursery to Year Six, we have high expectations of all of our pupils in order for them to learn, understand and use a wide range of vocabulary, structure their thoughts and to be able to communicate confidently with adults and peers. We recognise that it is a partnership between home and school which encourages each child to have a confidence in their own voice.
