Read on. Get on
Let's get every child in the UK reading well
Read On. Get On is a national campaign to get all our children reading well by the age of 11
At the moment far too many kids are leaving primary school without this key skill - including 40% of all our poorest children. The Read On. Get On mission is to change this for good so that by 2025 all our children will start secondary school as confident readers.
Everyone can do something - just 10 minutes reading a day with a child makes a huge difference and helps them fall in love with reading. It will take everyone, parents, grandparents, business, volunteers, teachers, celebrities and politicians, to crack this problem once and for all.
