Teach Primary

Teach Primary spans the big issues shaping education, daily classroom life, and the career concerns of every school professional. Their readers are experienced heads, senior leaders, academics and consultants.

Responding to curriculum, assessment and inspection changes is part and parcel of teaching life – like it or not – and their columnists provide expert opinion, perspective, and a touch of much needed humour on the key issues of the day. Information comes direct from schools too, as they regularly visit the top-performing settings in the country.

The magazine is published 10 times per year and we can offer you your first copy for free and then three issues for just £6 (a saving of 50% on the cover price)

Teach Secondary

The world of education is fast-moving and high-pressured; everyone has an opinion, and no one can deny that what happens in schools is incredibly important, for students, communities and indeed, our nation’s future. Expectations of teachers have arguably never been higher; yet at the same time, the status of the profession is somehow strangely undervalued.

Teach Secondary acknowledges this – and responds with an editorial policy that is based on respect and celebration. Sharp, relevant contributions from some of the most innovative and credible educational thinkers and practitioners around are presented with style and in a way that encourages challenge and debate. Real voices from actual classrooms ensure that effective teaching and learning is always the main mission, with sharing best practice a top priority.

The Day

The Day is an online digital news service aimed at secondary school pupils and teachers. The Day produces daily current affairs news articles that promote critical thinking and improve literacy skills. Their journalists produce at least three new articles and features every day of the school year. Every article can be used as a complete lesson with activities, debate questions and further reading provided.

Alongside the daily articles, there is a form time programme, weekly themes for assemblies, opinion pieces to promote critical thinking and the Friday quiz of the week’s news.

The Day are offering National Literacy Trust members an introductory 25% discount on new whole school subscriptions. This gives the whole school community access to the site, with a central login that can be used by students, teachers and parents. An automatic login can be set up on the school campus and the resource can be accessed off site using the central login details.
