Year 1 Phonics

 

The new statutory screening check for all Year 1 pupils takes place in June. The phonics screening check is a short assessment of phonic decoding which consists of 40 words. Please do not worry if your child has not reached this standard at the end of Year 1, we will put in extra support to ensure the children will improve their skills. Children will be retested in Year 2.

Results for St Thomas of Canterbury were 80% in 2017. The National average for 2017 was 81%.
