Young people will be getting most of their information about coronavirus and the economy from social media, not all of it will be correct, a lot of it will be “fake news” and possibly cause anxiety.
We want our pupils to know what is really going on, who’s making decisions for our nation and what’s happening internationally. We want our pupils to have the knowledge and tools to question and discuss current affairs. Reading The Day every day equips them with the information they need, it challenges and develops their critical literacy and will help support them through uncertain times.
