Secondary Schools

Advanced Picture News is a weekly news resource which is often used during form time, based around a current news story and engaging image.

The resources are designed to be thought provoking, leading to discussions, debates and creative writing for pupils in KS3 and KS4. We place a great deal of emphasis on learning from the news (as well as about) and the resources are emailed direct to all your staff each Friday ready to use for the week ahead!

Embedding British Values

In an OFSTED Outstanding school... "Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, within this, the promotion of fundamental British values, are at the heart of the school's work." Through the use of Picture News, we can help keep your children up to date with the fast-changing world around them. Helping to challenge their ideas and pre-conceptions; ultimately this will help to broaden their horizons and enable them to deal with the modern world.

We are using Picture News posters as our assembly focus every week. They are brilliant at catching the children's attention and highlighting current news items in a child friendly way. Thank you for revamping our Assemblies and bringing the news into our school.

I loved this week's poster and plan to use it in assembly on Monday. I've put it up in the hall for the children to consider beforehand.

I want to know what is happening in the world so I can try and make the world a better place and keep people and animals healthy.

The news makes me aware of the bad and good things happening and when I’m older I can make an influence.
