The Speech programme for 10-11 years
Our Belief
How the programme works

Welcome to the Mighty Oak Public Speaking Programme

We believe that every child leaving primary school can know how to have a clear, articulate speaking voice with a  strong commanding presence. 


This is the absolute focus of the programme and we have designed it specifically with you, the teacher in mind.  There are five lessons. We recommend an hour a week of hall time. 

The Year 4 Competition Programme has been running since 2017. 

The Competition programme dovetails with this confident speaking programme. 

As a school undertaking the Mighty Oak Public Speaking Programme,  you are warmly invited to enter your class into the in-person competition up at the local university,  where the pupils have a platform to practise their public speaking skills.

The heartbeat of our public speaking programme is to give every child the opportunity to become a confident speaker.  Inclusion is key. 

No matter the abilities of the children in other subjects , every child can succeed in these lessons. 

We aim to help every child reach their potential with confidence.


One hour, once a week, for five weeks
