Making sure that every child leaves primary school able to read well is a crucial part of efforts to turn educational inequalities around – so that every child succeeds, regardless of their background. This is why the Read On. Get On. campaign coalition is focused on ensuring that every child can read well by the time they leave primary school. Save the Children is committed to building a national mission to tackle underachievement in reading, drawing in energy and expertise from across society.

The focus of this report is on the role of national government and local services in Scotland in supporting children and parents. Read On. Get On. is also working with a wide range of partners to develop a major behaviour change campaign aimed at empowering parents to understand what they can do.
