Why it matters?

On 2nd November 2016, the National Literacy Trust published a report* which shows that just one fifth of children and young people (20.7%) write daily outside the classroom. The new research states 'This is a significant drop since 2014 when more than a quarter of pupils (27.2%) put pen to paper or wrote digitally every day outside school. In fact, more than a quarter of children (28.1%) now say that they rarely or never write something that isn't for school.'

These statistics are saddening and they matter. Story Chefs has been developed to tackle this lack of engagement and ignite a storytelling spark in children and young people across the UK.
