Mike looks at the success of the Every Child a Reader scheme, which on average, helped children who were struggling to read to improve their reading age by nearly two years in just four or five months.

With the government rolling out similar schemes for counting and writing, the target is now for 90 per cent of 11-year-olds to achieve their expected level or higher in English and maths over the next three years. Mike speaks to teachers to see how ECC and ECW will work in primary schools.
