Read On. Get On.

ROGO logo

Read On. Get On. is a campaign to get all children reading well in England by the age of 11. It was launched in 2014 by a coalition of charities and education organisations committed to improving reading levels in the UK. A fifth of all children in England, and close to a third of disadvantaged children, are unable to read well when they leave primary school. This prevents them from achieving their potential in secondary school, and beyond, and creates obstacles to a fairer society.

ROGO Index

Based on a new tripartite model of reading well at age 11, the model asserts that a good reader has strong cognitive skills (including phonics and decoding), affective processes (including high levels of reading enjoyment) and reading behaviours (including reading outside school on a daily basis). The ROGO Index measures how well 11-year-olds in England are reading across these three areas using data from the Department for Education, GL Assessment, Renaissance Learning and the National Literacy Trust.

About Read On. Get On.

Read On. Get On. (ROGO) was launched in 2014 by a coalition of charities and education organisations committed to improving reading levels. The campaign aims to get all children reading well by the age of 11 and to have all children achieving good levels of language, early literacy and reading development by the age of five.

In April 2015, we were delighted to receive cross-party support for the ROGO goal, demonstrating the commitment of the three main parties to address the challenge of children’s literacy.

In November 2016, we launched A strategy to get England's children reading which sets our strategy for getting all children reading well by the age of 11.
