What our customers say...

Our school has benefited from the full range of News Mag Media publications over the years.

We have been fans of The Primary Planet and News Flash for many years now. From early days when we were new customers we have found the magazines to be engaging and our pupils could not wait for them to arrive.

The support material that is available is second to none and all of our teachers report hugely positive outcomes from utilising the magazines for literacy activities in class…
