Level 1 Philosophy for Children (P4C)

Philosophy for Children is a SAPERE accredited two day course which looks at accelerating attainment as well as raising confidence and improving behaviour.P4C is an active learning technique which gives children an opportunity to discuss big ideas in a safe and structured way.
In a 2015 EEF efficacy trial, KS2 pupils who regularly did P4C made two additional months’ progress in reading and maths. And KS2 pupils eligible for free school meals made four months’ additional progress in reading, three in maths plus two in writing.

P4C was also found to have a positive influence on pupils’ confidence to speak, their listening skills, and their self-esteem.

Facilitated by Topsy Page, this course is suitable for all age groups from Early Years to KS4.

“Topsy Page’s training is excellent, it is based on research and fits in perfectly with the reality of teaching in a turbulent climate.  Staff have been inspired and refreshed by her honest and knowledgeable approach.”

— Headteacher, Manchester

Topsy is also available to conduct talk audits and any oracy training.  The talk audits will include a full-day audit of the quality of staff and pupil talk in your school.  Analysis and tailored recommendations in a detailed report.

Topsy can also improve pupil-to-pupil dialogue, introduce Templates for Talk and improve questioning in lessons.
