Introduction to Philosophy for Children
P4C is a vital part of Mundella. It is a whole school approach, which is used across the curriculum and with all ages and abilities. It is intended to be a regular activity so that the children develop their skills and understanding over time. The aim of P4C is to help children to develop the skills and qualities that will enable them to contribute as responsible citizens of the future. To do this, we create an environment where a child’s questioning can flourish, developing children’s abilities to ask their own thoughtful questions. The approach not only helps to develop creative and critical thinking skills but also encourages children to care more about what others say and develop the ability to recognise differences and explore these collaboratively. This supports the school’s ethos and values of creating a caring school and classroom environment where children learn to listen to and respect each other.
