Every year we leave thousands of young children, many of them poor, behind in their reading. This means they’re less likely to experience the joy of reading, and they then struggle for the rest of their education and career. This report sets out who is being left behind and why.

Recognising the fundamental importance of reading well by the age of 11 and, optimistic about our chances of turning the situation around, a coalition of leading Scottish organisations has come together to launch the Read On. Get On. campaign.

Together we will take action to work towards a historic goal:  all children should be reading well by the age of 11.
