Save the Children in partnership with National Literacy Trust, the National Association of Head Teachers, and a number of other organisations is launching a new literacy campaign called Read On: Get On.

The campaign's mission is to ensure every child born this year is reading well by the time they are 11 in 2025, highlighting the shocking statistic that 130,000 children leave primary school in the UK every year with poor literacy levels.

Alongside the launch of the campaign is a new report which describes the scale and depth of the literacy problem in the UK and its negative impact on social mobility and routes out of poverty. You can find it on the Save the Children website and on our Publications page.
