Philosophy is a valued addition to our curriculum as we believe it is important for children to be encouraged to think for themselves and then be able to express those thoughts. To then be able to have a discussion and listen to each other, understand each other and teach each other. Philosophy encourages children to value their own views, disagree respectfully and to feel an important part of the community. It will also, over time, improve confidence levels, responsible behaviours, critical and creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
