Our Mission:
We train teachers in Philosophy for Children which encourages children to think critically, creatively, collaboratively and caringly. We help children, particularly those facing disadvantage, to become lifelong learners.

Philosophy for Children - P4C

Improves teaching and learning for the lasting benefit of individuals, schools, colleges and communities.  In P4C the teacher facilitates a student-led discussion on a philosophical question. P4C builds higher order thinking, questioning, speaking and listening skills. Over 25 years, SAPERE has trained more than 27,000 teachers in the practice of P4C. The EEF has validated P4C in its pupil premium toolkit
