Primary school first to win philosophy award

Wed, 13 Jan 2016


Andreas Primary School has become the first Manx school to win a 'Philosophy for Children' award.

Professor Matthew Lipman designed the P4C approach to help children to become better thinkers - the school's been applying his principles since 2013.

Teachers provide stimulus like a poem or object which is then used to spark discussion and raise questions.

Headteacher Rachel Ashley says she's pleased with the bronze award:
