We are committed to evaluating and researching the impact of our practice. In July 2014 our research was validated at Standard 2 by Project Oracle. In 2017-2018, teachers reported that 85% of children taking part in Speech Bubbles showed improvements in learning, speaking and listening and 86% showed improvements in emotional behaviour and conduct behaviour.
