Phonics Screening Check

Children in Year 1 throughout the country will be taking part in a phonics screening check in the week commencing June the 10th 2024. Children in Year 2 will also re-take the check if they did not achieve the required standard in Year 1.


Follow the link below to a video which explains the process for parents.

You can view the checks from previous years on the links below. This is a good way to familiarise children with the format.

There are lots of interactive games online that can make practicing fun. The Phonics Play website is a fun way to prepare for the check. Select phases 4 and 5 on the games below to practice blending and sorting both real and pseudo words.
