Annual Literacy Pupil Survey

Our annual survey of primary and secondary pupils covers reading and writing, and takes place in the autumn term. This year’s survey will also contain a few questions on mental wellbeing, technology use and school libraries.

Participating schools get their own individual school report that outlines your basic findings, which you can compare nationally once the national reports are published.

You could use your report to:

  • inform literacy strategy
  • give as supporting evidence to OFSTED
  • review your current literacy provision

How it works

We aim to survey children and young people aged nine to 18, both male and female, from a variety of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds.

Participating schools will need to provide pupils with access to a 25 minute online survey, and we will do the rest. The survey can either be done online at school or it could be set as homework.

Our aim is to build a year-on-year picture of literacy within the UK through the eyes of young people.
