Phonics Screening Test
A Little School With Big Ideas
You may be aware that the children undertake a Phonics Screening Check, and this usually takes place at the end of Year 1.
Unfortunately, due to lockdown and school closures during the 2020-2021 school year, this check was cancelled nationally. The DfE states that, in the 2021-2022 academic year, it is statutory for schools to administer the Phonics Screening Check to Year 2 pupils during the second half of the 2021 Autumn Term (ie. November-December 2021) and to return results to their local authority. The autumn check is intended to ensure that any Year 2 pupils, who need support in learning to decode using phonics, are not missed.
Children who are currently in Year 1 will be expected to take the check in June 2022, along with any Year 2 pupils who do not pass in the Autumn.
