BBC News School Report gives 11-14 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. Started in 2006 by BBC News, teachers and students can use lesson plans and materials from the BBC News School Report website, and with support from BBC staff, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
