Primary schools can now sign up for Discover Debating for Upper KS2 pupils. Last year 1,770 children benefited from the programme, generating on average a 60 per cent improvement in speaking and listening (oracy) skills. We want more young people, especially those in schools with high levels of deprivation, to experience how debating can help them thrive academically, professionally and personally.

Attached here is a copy of a promotion we’re running in Teach Primary (a magazine aimed at teachers) to promote Discover Debating – our in-school programme for Upper KS2 primary pupils. You can use it to let primary schools in your area know that they can now sign up for the programme.
OVER 90 PER CENT DISCOUNT FOR QUALIFYING STATE PRIMARY SCHOOLS
Primary schools can now sign up for the 2019-20 academic year. The full price for independent and state schools with low levels of pupils on Free School Meals (FSM) is £1,500+VAT. We have a substantial discount for schools with high levels of Free School Meals (FSM) – but places are limited.
Three things you can do to help:
- Email the promotion to schools in your area or to teachers and headteachers you already know
- Consider printing the promotion and asking your local library to put it on their notice boards
- Spread the word at all your branch events
