Let’s talk about oracy

This session will explore the benefits of a high-quality oracy education and discuss research, real life experiences and practical strategies from classrooms up and down the country and practitioners that are embracing the benefits of teaching oracy explicitly to their students.



As a former teacher and middle leader in Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), Alternative Provision and mainstream schools; Rachel Ratcliffe has seen first-hand the benefits of explicitly teaching students the skills to effectively communicate and the nuances within that communication. In SEMH alternative education, Rachel truly saw the benefits of active listening – and being able to say what you really mean – on young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
