SAPERE Philosophy for Children School Award

SAPERE’s three awards   Bronze Award   Silver Award   Gold Award  form part of SAPERE’s Going for Gold programme. Going for Gold is a structured training and support programme for implementing whole school P4C.  The awards provide schools with guidance on progression towards achieving outstanding and sustainable P4C practice for the pupils, the teachers and the school. 

Bronze is for schools that have made a commitment to P4C as a whole school pedagogy and started on the SAPERE validated training pathway.

Silver recognizes that P4C is a regular part of the teaching and learning within the school.  The children demonstrate familiarity with philosophical concepts and questions.  Teachers begin to integrate planning and reviewing P4C across the curriculum.

Gold Award schools have more fully embedded P4C, which is reflected in the school ethos, strategy and staff professional.  P4C SAPERE Gold schools can demonstrate that P4C is sustainable and showcase this to others as ambassadors of P4C.  It is expected that a school would not be eligible for the Gold Award status with less than 3 years of P4C.
