P4C, (philosophy for children) is an embedded scheme within our S.M.S.C. strands, but equally across all areas of the curriculum.  This scheme allows our children to develop their metacognitive skills, creating children that are respectful, logical and free thinkers.  Openness underpins P4C, it gives the children an arena to discuss their own ideas and opinions in relation to a wide range of stimuli.  The understanding of no right or wrong answers, just given opinions. By removing this barrier, it allows for honesty, clarity of thought and self reflection.
