Pupils who arrive in secondary school as poor readers are likely to continue to struggle. in 2022, 41% of year 6 pupils in England left primary school without meeting the expected standards in literacy and maths – 275,000 11-year-olds, according to researchers at the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) thinktank - 50,000 more than in 2019. We cannot blame this on the pandemic - 27% failed to meet the minimum expected standard in reading in the 2018 and 2019 year.
Although a national parental strategy would be a great idea, the reality is that a solution is needed NOW, and a lot of parents can't help. They can't read either.
Illiteracy in the UK is a big problem.
Miss Emma is releasing a solution to improve Word Recognition, and The Reading Hut will find the funding so that it can be offered in the UK to PARENTS of struggling KS2 children, for free.
