Phonics Screening Check - Parent Information

All children normally complete the phonics screening check in Y1, however, due to the situation with Covid-19 the children will now complete the screening check in the half term before Christmas. The purpose of this screening check is to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding and blending skills to an appropriate standard. 

I have attached a parent guide which will provide you with more information.
