ACADEMICS

Enhancing the Academic Curriculum with

Philosophy for Children

Throughout the Primary School, Philosophy for Children (P4C) is incorporated into the academic programme. We live in a fast-paced and ever-changing world. New technologies replace the old; knowledge rests at our fingertips; we are bombarded by truths, half-truths and lies on social media; our world has retained and developed socially pressing problems and we have seen the rise of radicalisation. Philosophy for children (P4C) provides a safe place for children to voice their opinions as well as listen to the opinions of others. The four Cs of P4C aim to create creative, critical, caring and cooperative thinkers. The fundamental principle of P4C is to enter into dialogue within a structured setting. It is within this framework that our children can argue and participate in a communal manner and learn to evaluate their own arguments with regard to social and political life while engaging and acknowledging the points of views of others.
