Children and Young People's Reading in Manchester in 2016

Added 23 Jun 2017

Fewer children and young people in Manchester say that they enjoy reading compared with their peers nationally and fewer read daily outside class. This is based on a survey of 5,000 pupils from 60 primary and secondary schools in Manchester, who participated in spring 2016.


By raising awareness of the differences in reading attitudes and behaviours between children and young people in Manchester and nationally, we hope to highlight the groups of pupils with most to benefit from initiatives encouraging greater engagement with reading.
