Christina Clark; Irene Picton; Jessie Ricketts – National Literacy Trust, 2023
Historically, reading has been emphasised more in primary than secondary education, with initiatives to support reading typically falling away as children move up the school system.

Picton, Irene; Clark, Christina; Riad, Lara; Cole, Aimee – National Literacy Trust, 2022
Online environments are an integral part of the lives of many young people.

Teravainen-Goff, Anne; Clark, Christina; Little, Sabine – National Literacy Trust, 2021
The number of children and young people in England who speak languages other than English at home has grown in the past decade, increasing from 14.6% in 2011 to 19.3% in 2021.

Picton, Irene; Clark, Christina; Riad, Lara; Cole, Aimee – National Literacy Trust, 2021
The conversation around reluctant readers continues to focus on boys, with research, practice and policy exploring what could be done to (re)engage boys in reading (see National Literacy Trust, 2012; Department for Education, 2019; OECD, 2021).

Todd, Tessa Tyler – National Literacy Trust, 2021
Primary school libraries are a vital part of the education system.

Clark, Christina; Picton, Irene; Riad, Lara; Teravainen-Goff, Anne – National Literacy Trust, 2021

In 2019, we found that that children who reported that they had a book of their own were not only more engaged with reading but also six times more likely to read above the level expected for their age than children who did not own a book (22% vs. 3.6%). We included…

Teravainen-Goff, Anne; Hackett, Sian; Clark, Christina – National Literacy Trust, 2020
Aspirations in the educational context have been a topic of interest for researchers, practitioners and policy makers for many decades. This is not surprising as aspirations function as motivators and young people who develop ambitious but achievable aspirations are more likely to achieve positive outcomes. Some evidence does indeed suggest that…
