The Read On. Get On. (ROGO) coalition was launched by 12 charities and educational organisations in 2014 with the aim of getting all children in England reading well by the age of 11.

In July 2018 CLPE published their Reflecting Realities Report, a new study of ethnic representation in children’s literature. Funded by the Arts Council, the aim was to quantify and evaluate the extent and quality of ethnic representation and diversity in children’s publishing in the UK. This process involved analysing submissions of all children's literature published in the UK in 2017 that featured Black or minority ethnic (BAME) characters to determine to what extent they were represented. CLPE has also been successful in obtaining funding from the Arts Council England to publish similar reports in 2019 and 2020.
