NewsWise news literacy project and resources

NewsWise is a news literacy project which aims to empower children with the skills and knowledge they need to make sense of what they read, see and hear in an era of fake news. It helps them to enjoy engaging with the news, to feel confident in asking questions and challenging misinformation, and to form their own values and opinions about what is happening around them. It helps them to understand and find their own identity and voice at home, at school and within their wider communities.

The PSHE Association has worked in partnership with The Guardian and National Literacy Trust to produce a series of cross-curricular lesson plans, online resources, a teacher guide and journalism workshops for 9-11 year-olds — funded by Google. All materials are mapped to the PSHE Programme of Study and are free to all schools across the UK. The cross-curricular nature of the lessons means they don’t carry our quality mark, however we have ensured a strong PSHE thread throughout which meets our best practice principles.

Jonathan Baggaley, PSHE Association Chief Executive said:

“We are proud to be part of the pioneering NewsWise programme, designed to equip children and young people with the critical skills to negotiate an increasingly complex web of information from an early age. Teachers in classrooms around the country will find the materials invaluable.”
