This is the technical report for the independent evaluation of the Every Child a Reader (ECaR) programme - a mixed-method multi-faceted programme of research to investigate the implementation, impact and value-for-money of the intervention. It has been prepared on behalf of the Department for Education by a consortium of the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), Colin Harrison and Gill Johnson of the University of Nottingham and Susan Purdon of Bryson Purdon Social Research (BPSR). The ECaR programme was developed by a collaboration of the KPMG Charitable Trust with the Institute of Education and Government. It was supported financially by Government, a group of charitable trusts and business, and the LAs and schools who part funded their own implementation. The KPMG Charitable trust (later Every Child a Chance Trust) oversaw its development between 2005 and 2008. In 2008, the then-Government committed to a national roll-out of ECaR. This began under the management of National Strategies, working in partnership with the Reading Recovery national network at the Institute of Education, with the intention that by the academic year 2010-11, 30,000 pupils a year would access reading support through ECaR.
