SAPERE Bronze Award for Philosophy for Children

Andreas School has become the first on the Island to win an award for Philosophy for Children (P4C). We are delighted to have achieved the SAPERE Bronze Award. This is in recognition of our commitment to the approach to developing thinking skills.

Making the award, SAPERE said “P4C is firmly embedded at the school, led by an enthusiastic and committed teacher, Steph Cottier. The school has provided excellent evidence of the progress made by pupils using P4C.”

Geoff Moorcroft, Director of Education, has also congratulated the school, saying: “P4C is a demanding but rewarding way to approach the curriculum that has been proven to encourage the development of intellectual, communication and social skills. I’m delighted that Andreas’ work in this area has been recognised by SAPERE and that the school is routinely offering such rich, vibrant and challenging opportunities for learning for its pupils.”
