Phonics Screening


What is the Phonics Screeing Check?n

Children complete a word-reading check at the end of Year 1 so that parents can be confident their children are being taught to read successfully.


Children read 40 words. It takes between two and five minutes.


If they do not manage to read 32 of the words, they are given extra support, and repeat the check at the end of Year 2.


The 'pass' mark of 32 is subject to change by the government and schools will be notified some time in June of this figure.


All children at Trinity CEVAP will be supported to learn phonics using the Active Learn Phonics Bug Programme. 


Year 1 will take the Phonics Screening check in June 2022.

Here are the slides from the Year 1 Phonics Meeting.

Practicing Phonics daily is very important. Below are some links to websites with Phonics resources and games to help your child practice their Phonics.
