Phonics Screening Check

What is the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check? 

The phonics screening check is very simply to see if children across schools are doing well with their phonics. For us, the check serves to confirm what we knew all along - our children are amazing at phonics! 


The check is administered by teachers at the school. They have training and checks are moderated to make sure they are accurate. Children read a variety of real and nonsense/alien words to see how they use their knowledge of phonics sounds to read words. 


The video below explains it much better than writing so we hope it is useful.
