P4C (Philosophy for Children) is a vital part of Learning for Life at St Luke's. In P4C children learn to raise their own questions and build on each other's ideas, thinking deeply about things that really matter to them.
Proud holders of the Sapere P4C Bronze Award, St Luke's secured support from the Dame Alice Owen Foundation to share this exciting approach with seven other Islington schools. We organised P4C training for teachers and teaching assistants, hosted visits to demonstrate how we think together, and arranged three annual Philosothon events for young philosophers from across the borough.
Leona - P4C is an amazing subject that helps you learn a lot more about what your friends think!
Ava - My favourite thing about P4C is that you can hear other people's opinion and there is no right or wrong answer.
Neriah - P4C is good because children who are often quiet in class contribute to the discussion.
Jidechi - I like P4C because you get to answer interesting questions.
Ming - In P4C you get to argue your point of view in a friendly and respectful way.
