At DECSY most, if not all, of our curriculum development projects have P4C (Philosophy for Communities / Children) at their heart. See Helen Griffin’s blog describing the use of P4C as part of the Nonviolent Action: A Force for Change project: https://www.thinktogethersheffield.org/post/nonviolent-action-a-force-for-change
Our Philosophy for Children on-line After School Club runs on Tuesdays, 4.30pm – 5.45pm, and is now available for credits from Sheffield Children’s University.
Our latest Annual Report is available here. A great overview of our activities during 2020.

New Resources links added for January 2021 – DECSY staff have put together a selection of resources aimed at children / young people learning at home. They are aimed at parents and carers but can also be used by teachers and in some cases for self directed study.
This new resource and associated free training sessions will help teachers make a contribution to a recovery curriculum in schools, and beyond this, by providing interesting, engaging and relevant content that encourages pupils to recall, discuss and process some of their thoughts, feelings and memories. The next training session – January, 2021, TBC.
