Chris Tidswell

Chris is a Year 3 teacher and Deputy Head at Clifton School and Nursery.  After teaching for several years, he became interested in teaching Philosophy to young children. He feels strongly that children should question assumptions, think critically and learn how to ‘argue’ without ‘falling out’! He often finds that children’s ‘out of the box’ thinking can make him see some issues in a whole new light.
