Sure Start 'has failed to boost children's literacy and numeracy'
"Children's early language and numeracy has improved little despite initiatives, such as Sure Start, aimed at boosting pre-school educational achievement, according to research published today.
"Experts studying the development of 117,000 children starting primary school in England over eight years said their findings showed that early years programmes needed to be reviewed to check whether they were reaching those most in need, particularly pupils from poor backgrounds.
"Basic levels of development in early reading, vocabulary and maths remained largely unchanged between 2001 and 2008, the team from the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (Cem), at Durham University, said."
