About the project
Brudenell School, funded by Creative Partnerships, embarked on the ambitious three year Change School Programme in just two years! Their ambition was to train all teaching and support staff in philosophy for children (P4C) and embed this practice across the school.
Under the leadership of an enthusiastic SAPERE-trained Head Teacher, the whole school trained to level one in P4C and began leading regular philosophical enquires from nursery to year six. Thinking Space supported this process, by modelling sessions, mentoring teachers, working with parents and producing materials for work throughout the school.
As part of the Change School program, the project ran concurrently with a parallel Forest Schools project which opened up some fascinating conversations about the links between the two pedagogies.
