THE PHONICS SCREEN IN YEAR 1
Children are assessed in Year 1 on their phonics ability in June in the Phonics Screen. This is carried out on a one to one basis with a class teacher in Year 1. A child will either pass or not pass this assessment. Any children who do not pass the assessment when they are in Year 1 will be assessed again at the end of Year 2. Please see the document below for further information about the process and answers to some commonly asked questions.
