We have made significant progress. last summer Literacy School ran as a Pilot Scheme last summer and 500 will be Supported next year. Study support centres will open shortly at a number of Premier League football clubs. We will consult shortly on a National Framework for Motivating Pupils outside the Classroom and will continue to work with colleagues in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on proposals for Lottery funding to be available for out-of-school hours activities.
