SAPERE is the UK charity that manages the Philosophy for Children P4C in the UK. There is a wealth of information on their website .
P4C is endorsed by UNICEF and practiced in over 50 countries. P4C values difference, creativity, relationships and the emergence of new thought. All of these are vital to the Wellbeing of children and their communities. P4C is an ethical and responsible philosophy that has at its heart the desire the listen to others and to learn from each other.
Introduced in the early years and practiced throughout primary and secondary schools its philosophical approach helps to tackle problems associated with democratic discussion and managing differences of opinion, conflicting beliefs, strong feelings, controversial issues and decision-making. The emphasis on oral work, personal experience and collaboration makes it accessible to all students.
