Phonics Screening Check 


The Year 1 phonics screening will take place the first week back after half term 6th – 10th June.

Year 2 children who did not pass the phonic screening in the Autumn term will also be resitting the phonics screening check during this week. 

Your child has made super progress in their reading this year.

Let’s keep them reading this half-term for maximum success in the Phonics Screening Check.

Three things you can do to help:

  • Take a look at the ‘Helping your child with Phonics’ information pack to find out how we teach phonics and what resources we use.
  • Listen to your child read the book bag books sent home and the eBooks that they have been allocated on New login cards have been sent home again before the half term. (Some children may be given ditty sheets instead of books.)
  • Click on the virtual classroom links so that children can practise all of the set two and set three sounds ready for the phonics screening check.
