An award-winning, cross-curricular news literacy project for seven- to 11-year-olds across the UK, set up by the Guardian Foundation, National Literacy Trust and PSHE Association

Why it matters

Fake news is a real problem. We live in an era of major national and international political change and disinformation. NewsWise is an award-winning primary programme which aims to empower seven- to 11-year-olds with the skills and knowledge to navigate this confusing world. We want to help them to engage with and enjoy news, to feel confident to ask questions and to challenge misinformation, to have their own values and opinions. We want to help young people to develop a clear and authentic voice amongst their peers, in their homes, schools and wider communities.
