Phonics Screening Check

Phonics Screening Check

In June the children in Year One take a phonics screening check.

The phonics screening check is an informal test that children will need to complete at the end of year 1. During the test, which is designed to test their ability to decode words using their phonics knowledge, children will be required to read a mixture of 40 real and nonsense words.
The phonics screening check is an important part of children’s early phonics education. While it isn’t conducted under normal test conditions and won’t determine whether or not they progress into year 2, it’s a crucial assessment as it shows how well their reading and phonics skills are developing. Those children who do not pass the check in year 1 will continue their phonics learning into year 2 and will retake the check in year 2

This is a video which will help to support your child at home with phonics.

Together we learn, together we achieve.
