Read On. Get On. is a national campaign to get every child in the UK reading well by the age of 11. At the moment far too many children are leaving primary school without this key skill – including, in England, one in three of our poorest children. Our mission is to change this for good so that all our children start secondary school as confident readers. Further information about how you can get involved in the campaign is available here.
On behalf of the ROGO coalition in England, the RSA has been commissioned to develop a new national reading strategy for England. This work will provide analysis of the problem, identify key objectives and set out the strategic action needed over the next decade to achieve the following target goals for 2020 and 2025:
All children achieve good early language development by age five by 2020
Every child is able to read well by the age of 11 by 2025, with good progress made so that we are at least halfway towards this goal by 2020
Call for Evidence
We are launching a call for evidence to invite submissions from all individuals and organisations with an interest in promoting children’s reading and early language development. Your contributions will help us to identify key issues and strategic priorities for action, to help achieve the 2020 and 2025 target goals.
To submit evidence, we invite you to respond to the questions on the response form, which is available here.
If you would like to submit any additional information or evidence, please get in touch via the contact details below for a brief discussion about what material would be most useful and relevant.
Completed responses should be submitted by 30 June 2015 to Thomas.Hauschildt@rsa.org.uk
