Phonics Outcomes

Phonics Screening

 

The phonics screening check is carried out at the end of Year 1 (June) to show how well your child can use the phonic skills they've learned and to identify pupils who need extra help.  The tests themselves are short, taking no more than 10 minutes to complete.  The check consists of 40 words and non-words that the child will be asked to read to the teacher.  Non words are a collection of letters that follow phonic rules but don't mean anything.  The pass threshold since 2014 has been 32.  If children do not reach the standard they will be given extra help and re-take the check at the end of Year 2.
