Children’s progress in phonics is continually reviewed through periodic phonic assessments and evidence from their reading and writing. Through these, teachers identify the graphemes that need to be addressed which then informs groupings. In June, the national Phonics Screening Check is undertaken to confirm that the children have learned to decode to an age appropriate standard and determines what level of provision they will require the following year.

I would like to say well done to our Year 1 children- 71% of pupils passed the phonics screen. Last year’s national average was 75% of pupils passing the screen. This is a fantastic result for us.
