Read On. Get On. is a national campaign to get all our children reading well by the age of 11.

At the moment far too many kids are leaving primary school without this key skill – including 40% of all our poorest children.

Our mission is to change this for good so that by 2025 all our children will start secondary school as confident readers.

Everyone can do something – just ten minutes reading a day with a child makes a huge difference and helps them fall in love with reading.

It will take everyone, parents, grandparents, business, volunteers, teachers, celebrities and politicans, to crack this problem once and for all.
