Children’s and Young People’s Reading in 2010: Setting the baseline

Added 22 Aug 2011 | Updated 09 Oct 17

Discover how much children and young people enjoyed reading in 2010, how often they read in their free time, what types of formats they read outside class, and what they thought about reading.


These findings are compared with those from the two previous years and are also broken down by gender, key stage, free school meal uptake and ethnic background. The relationship to writing attainment is also explored. 


18,141 young people aged eight to 17 participated in this online survey in November/December 2010.
