Children's and Young People's Reading in 2015

This report outlines findings about children’s and young people’s reading from our sixth annual literacy survey, which we conducted in November/December 2015. 32,569 children and young people aged eight to 18 participated. 

The report shows that levels of reading enjoyment and daily reading outside class  have continued to increase. However, this year’s report highlights a gulf in reading enjoyment and attitudes between primary and secondary pupils. 

Findings are broken down by sociodemographic information and are linked to reading attainment data.
