What are the literacy problem facing primary schools?

· 1 child in 5 leaves primary school unable to read well

· This rises to 1 in 3 among disadvantaged children

Is Reading Stars effective?

· 3 out of 4 pupils make at least 6 months’ progress in reading in just 10-weeks

· 1 in 3 makes a year’s progress or more

· The number of children who say they enjoy reading ‘very much’ almost doubles

· 7 out of 10 pupils say they are now proud to be readers

From the 2015/16 Coventry University report on Premier League Reading Stars: “children who received PLRS via a Premier League Club made significantly greater gains [than via ‘a standard’ school setting] in standardized reading scores compared to the control group”
