The “Read On. Get On” campaign

“A fifth of all children in England, and close to a third of the poorest children, are unable to read well when they leave primary school”

This is the first phrase of the report “The power of Reading: How the next government can unlock every child’s potential through reading”, in which the campaign Read On. Get On is based. A text aiming to raise awareness in the next Government about the importance of closing the reading gap in English society.
