At Millbrook Combined School our aim in P4C is to teach children the skills they will need to become well-balanced, responsible and successful adults who can articulate themselves effectively in any given situation. Teaching them the 4Cs (Collaboratively, caring, critically and creatively), will help them to achieve this.
Collaborative - If children are able to work collaboratively they will be able to work with other people in harmony. They will learn tolerance, respect and compromise and be ready to work as part of a group or team.
Caring - If children are taught to be caring towards each other they will learn respect and empathy and develop the morals needed to help anyone within their community.
Critical - If children are able to think critically, it will enable them to constantly evaluate their work and behaviours. It will also help them to make links between lessons, subjects and life events. It will also allow them to be able to question what others say and stand up for what they believe in.
Creative - If children are able to think creatively, it will enable them to tackle situations in a variety of ways, some of which others may not have thought of.
At Millbrook, we expect all children when leaving school to be able to stand up for what they believe in but also be sensitive enough to see a point of view through someone else’s eyes. They should be able to think outside the box and have a large and varied vocabulary.
