Oracy vision to be added here

Miss Brown is our oracy leader. She is currently studying with Voice 21 to become an advanced oracy practitioner and is a lead in the Voice Blackburn project. She also leads our very successful debating team, of which we have almost 40 children. Miss Brown joined us after a very successful, award winning career in journalism and trained with us here at Wensley Fold via School Direct.

Mr Simpson is our oracy consultant from Little Big Mouth,who works with us in school one day a week. He runs oracy workshops with the children and staff aiming to develop children’s love of the spoken word and develop their confidence in the delivery. He also helps school to run a very successful debating society and organises many inter school events such as the Blackburn with Darwen Debating League and Children’s University Public Speaking Competition. Mr Simpson joins us after an award winning career in acting which spanned 25 years prior to starting his own company-Little Big Mouth Drama.

We were pleased to be involved in Voice Blackburn starting Autumn 2020 in conjunction with Voice 21. Watch this space for more information.
