Year 1 Phonics Screening

 

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It will take place in June 2020. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. It will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill.

 

There are two sections in this 40-word check and it assesses phonics skills and knowledge learned through Reception and Year 1. Children will read up to four words per page for their teacher and they will probably do the check in one sitting of about 5-10 minutes.

 

You can download a copy of the 2018 Phonics screening check from the gov.uk website.

 

We will report your child's score (pass or fail) in their end of year school reports.

Key Stage 1- Year 2 SATs

 

Your child’s teacher is responsible for judging the standards your child is working at in English reading, English writing, mathematics and science, by the end of key stage 1. To help inform those judgements, pupils sit national curriculum tests in English and mathematics, commonly called SATs. They may also sit an optional test in English grammar, punctuation and spelling. The tests are a tool for teachers to help them measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into key stage 2. They also allow teachers to see how your child is performing against national expected standards. The tests can be taken any time during May and they are not strictly timed. Pupils may not even know they are taking them as many teachers will incorporate them into everyday classroom activities.

 

You will receive a teacher assessment judgement in:

 

- English Reading

- English Writing

- Maths 

- Science
