Phonics Screening

All children in Year 1 take a Phonics screening check in Summer Term.  This is a test is to see how the children are progressing with their phonics and reading skills.  The children are asked to read a range of words, real and pseudo (Alien).  This information is then reported to the government.  If a child does not pass the screening in Year 1 they must retake it in Year 2 unless the child has significant learning needs.  

Due to COVID-19 in 2020 all Year 2 children will be required to have the check in the Autumn Term.  We have decided to take administer the check week commencing 30th November 2020.


Below are the links to a training video and some resources that you can use to support your children at home as well as some example screening materials.
