Philosophy for Children




Philosophy for Children is one of the three pillars here at Newton Farm Primary School.

P4C is enquiry based learning which offers a way to open up children’s learning through enquiry and the exploration of ideas. Children learn that their ideas have value, and that the ideas of other children have value too. Through Philosophy for Children they realise that they don’t always have to be right, but they gain the confidence to ask questions and learn through discussion. We embed P4C throughout the school via lessons, lunchtime discussion of the question of the week and interactive displays. P4C is also shared and discussed in whole school assemblies.
