Philosophy for Children

We introduced Philosophy 4 Children to the school in 2016 to encourage independent thinking, develop children’s speaking and listening skills and eventually improve the children’s reading and writing skills as they learn to develop an argument.

The staff receive training themselves and we will work through the bronze, silver and gold awards to become a lead primary school in Philosophy 4 Children in the North-East.

The children work with different stimuli such as picture books, film clips, poetry and news items to form questions and discuss their thoughts.

Our Reception children appeared on CBeebies with their P4C work.
