Philosophy for Children (P4C)

Open to all interested staff


Philosophy for Children encourages children to think critically, creatively, collaboratively and caringly.

The network provides a rolling programme of P4C training for all key stages. Staff are encouraged to develop through the training stages – delivered by national charity Sapere – and can achieve qualifications up to Level 2. The ongoing nature of the programme allows sustainable practice across the network through continuous professional development. In addition to the training days, staff and children are encouraged to participate in an annual ‘Philosathon’ which brings many local schools together for an afternoon of shared P4C.
