The ability to communicate effectively is fundamental to a pupil's learning. Pupils at Ravensfield are given a wide range of opportunities to listen and respond to others and ask relevant questions to extend their understanding.
We understand the important role that sharing ideas plays in developing understanding; this is essential in our mastery curriculum. As a whole school, we are very focused on expanding the vocabulary our pupils use, modelling high standards and expectations.
We provide many opportunities to refine spoken language, including the use of Standard English, through practice and presentations in class as well as before wider audiences, such as assemblies and choral speaking events.
