Children’s and Young People’s Writing in 2013

This report outlines findings that relate to writing, taken from our fourth annual literacy survey, which we conducted in November/December 2013. 29,422 children and young people aged 8 to 16 participated. 

It shows that while the proportion of children and young people who write outside class daily has remained stable since 2010, 2013 showed an increase in the proportion of children who enjoy writing either very much or quite a lot. Not only have levels of writing enjoyment increased in 2013, but there have also been some shifts in attitudes towards writing.
