Building communities, developing leaders: P4C in a diverse London secondary school
‘P4C is an intuitive way for students to discuss controversial topics, to develop their social skills, verbal reasoning and cooperation with one another…[It] has allowed students to build strong relationships and cemented friendships between friends that would otherwise not have blossomed.’
