Have a fabulous summer holiday and we will see you on Tuesday 5th September.

Welcome to our Philosophy for Children Page

It has been confirmed that our bid to NFER (National Foundation for Educational Research) to take part in a 3 year programme evaluating the impact of Philosophy for Children(P4C) on raising standards in Reading, Maths and Social Skills has been successful. The project will lead to P4C Gold accreditation for our school.

The EEF has commissioned the research with results being shared with DfE in a report to be published in 2019/20.

We are pleased to be involved with the project as so much of the pedagogy of P4C fits with the culture and ethos of our Church school and curriculum. A training session for 25 staff will be scheduled to take place in the Spring/Summer term.

Mrs Hayley Lee will be leading the project for us with opportunity for other staff to be trained to Advanced P4C level.
