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).

We included…
