Year 1 Phonics Screening Check - Info for Parents

Children in Year 1 take a statutory test in the summer term, to asses their ability to decode words, using phonics.


Children are required to decode a list of real and nonsense words, by sounding the words out and blending the sounds to read the word. This is called the 'Year 1 Phonics Screening Check'.
