Philosophy 4 Children, Ethics and PSHE

Leader: Mrs Kenward

Our Curriculum


Philosophy for children and ethics

Doing philosophy with children is exciting and encourages them to explore beneath the surface of things. It challenges them to ask questions and go beyond easy, obvious answers. Sometimes these are looking at ethical issues that children can try and gain an understanding of the world in which they live and look at whether decisions are based around a variety of influences. They can come up through thought processes an understanding of how others think and what they do or don't agree with.


During philosophy sessions we see the children grapple with an idea, consider the views of others and often come to a reasoned judgement well beyond their years. It allows them the opportunity to voice their opinions in an environment where everyone listens and all opinions are valued, knowing that answers are neither right nor wrong.


The children really enjoy these sessions and we hope they will have a positive impact on their social, speaking and listening and comprehension skills.
