We were delighted to find a professional company who could prepare our children to participate in Public Speaking and Performance Prose/Poetry awards through LAMDA. What started as an extra-curricular, after-school club has become an integral part of our enrichment offer in accelerating the progress of our pupils. We use part of the Pupil Premium Grant for Fresh Arts to provide in-school Oracy development. This has had a significant impact, particularly on our new arrival/beginner EAL pupils. Class teachers, parents and pupils

themselves talk positively and passionately about the children’s increase in confidence and willingness to speak out loud. The Fresh Arts tutors have helped our children to ‘find their voice’ and to use it.
