'Invisible' pupils are pupils that are largely overlooked by teachers and by school data systems. They are often midle-ability pupils; they don’t have special educational needs but are not high achievers either. They are often quiet, well-behaved and have a high attendance rate. These pupils can easily slip under the radar.
With the recent release of Folk Tales, we take a look why reading for pleasure is crucial.
Studies show that children who read for pleasure and have a positive attitude towards reading have higher levels of attainment and personal development, according to the DfE's report on reading for pleasure. There is also research suggesting there is a positive correlation between reading for pleasure and social mobility.
