Does Reading Recovery work?

Does Reading Recovery work?

Yes, Eight out of every ten children who complete it catch up with their classmates. For the annual reports of Reading Recovery please click here.

Our national monitoring shows that a well implemented Reading Recovery programme can close the attainment gap for struggling readers, including children in poverty and that children maintain their gains.

The IEE (Institute of Effective Education, University of York) has compared RR to some other interventions. The evidence shows that the effectiveness of RR is very strong. Further information on this can be found here.
