Phonics Screening Check (Year 1)

Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

In the summer term, Year 1 children have to participate in the statutory Phonics Screening Check. This involves the accurate decoding of 42 words using the phonemes learnt up to the end of Phase 5. Some of the words are real and some are not. The Check is administered in a relaxed and calm environment, 1-1 with their teacher to reduce any stress for your child. The outcome of the check will be reported to you in their end of year report.
