Nuffield Foundation research into non-cognitive impacts of Philosophy for Children

This Nuffield Foundation-funded study with the Durham University School of Education analysed data from the 2015 Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) research trial. 

The research explores whether P4C has an impact on non-cognitive outcomes such as:

  • pupils’ relationships with school, teachers and peers
  • pupils’ confidence, well-being and self-esteem
  • pupils’ voice and how they engage with opinions that differ from their own
  • teachers’ attitudes towards pupils’ learning

The research project manager was Nadia Siddiqui: nadia.siddiqui@durham.ac.uk from the Durham University School of Education.
