Young Readers Programme: Developing a Love of Reading in Primary Schools. A National Literacy Trust Research Report
Teravainen-Goff, Anne; Clark, Christina; Brown, Ariadne
National Literacy Trust
This report highlights the enduring importance of our Young Readers Programme by providing children with impactful positive reading experiences as well as opportunities to choose and, crucially, keep books. This is particularly important for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, with over 1 in 4 children who receive free school meals telling us that they received their first book of their own as a result of taking part in the Young Readers Programme. Teachers also feel more empowered to support their pupils' reading for pleasure, and the programme creates sustainable change by promoting a school culture that celebrates reading.
