Rushanara Ali MP
Labour Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow and Associate Director of the Young Foundation
"I am extremely delighted to hear that The Philosophy Foundation is planning to bring philosophy workshops to primary children in Bethnal Green and Bow and I very much support their initiative. I believe it is very important to support children in thinking for themselves in order to be able to grow in intellectual confidence and I commend The Philosophy Foundation in their aim to do just that … I congratulate The Philosophy Foundation on all their achievements so far and wish them every success with all their future endeavours."
Primary LAC Advisory Teacher at Brent Virtual School for Looked After Children
"Our primary LAC group have really been enjoying the weekly Philosophy Group with Viv. The sessions have really helped the children to become more articulate and more careful in their processing and thinking, about their ideas. It is a great opportunity for our children to meet each other in a safe place and creatively explore the way they can use their voice and form arguments in a debate."
