star this property answer text <p>The Department welcomes the National Literacy Trust’s research on reading in both print and digital forms.</p><p> </p><p>The Department encourages children to develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information, whatever the format. Research suggests that reading for pleasure is more important for children’s educational development than their parents’ level of education.</p><p> </p><p>There is sound evidence that systematic synthetic phonics is a highly effective method of teaching reading to children. Phonics performance is improving: in 2018, there were 163,000 more 6 year olds on track to become fluent readers compared to 2012. This represented 82% of pupils meeting the expected standard in the phonics screening check, compared to just 58% when the check was introduced in 2012.</p><p> </p><p>Building on the success of our phonics partnerships and phonics roadshows programmes, in 2018 we launched a £26.3 million English Hubs Programme. Hub schools are taking a leading role in improving the teaching of early reading through systematic synthetic phonics, early language development, and reading for pleasure. We have appointed 34 primary schools across England as English Hubs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Children and Families Act 2014 sets out the statutory framework for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), which places a number of duties on local authorities and others. Guidance is provided in the 0-25 SEND Code of Practice. This is available online here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25</a> and is supported by a range of other guidance and information available online both via GOV.UK and on the National Association for Special Educational Needs (Nasen) SEND gateway (https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/).</p><p> </p><p>The government takes the support for children and young people with dyslexia seriously. I recently spoke at a global summit on dyslexia attended by more than 200 people, including industry bodies and organisations, educationalists and over 35 overseas foundations and governments who support dyslexia.</p><p> </p><p>Between April 2017 and March 2018, the department provided £500,000 to the British Dyslexia Association, in partnership with Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties, the Dyspraxia Foundation and Manchester Metropolitan University, to provide support for children and young people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. This builds on work with dyslexia organisations the government funded in 2013-15 and 2015-16 to facilitate better support for children with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties</p><p> </p><p>This year we are funding Nasen and University College London, on behalf of the Whole School SEND consortium which includes the British Dyslexia Association, to embed SEND into school improvement practice and equip the workforce to deliver high quality teaching across all types of special educational needs (SEN). New SEND regional leads will bring together practitioners and networks in their local area to build a community of practice, help identify regional SEN school improvement priorities and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
