End of Year 1

The phonics screening check is a check of a child’s ability to decode words using only his or her phonic knowledge.  It helps us as a school to confirm whether your child has met the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 1.  The check is a statutory requirement for all children and takes places in the Summer Term.  Children who do not take the check in Year 1, or who did not meet the expected standard, will take the check again at the end of Year 2.
