Philosophy for Children Silver Award
We are delighted to let you know that we have achieved our Silver award in Philosophy for
Children (P4C). We use P4C across the curriculum to develop thinking, speaking and listening
skills. It also helps the children to debate and discuss some difficult issues that come up on the
news and in the media. We also use P4C to teach British Values. We are the second school in
the whole of Sheffield to achieve this and one of only twelve in the whole country!
