Year 1 Phonics Screening 2017

During 2014 and 2015 the proportion of our pupils who achieved the expected standard was broadly average. To improve this we invested in new resources and training for all our staff to ensure a more consistent approach to the teaching of phonics. The impact of this was that in 2016 and 2017 above average proportions of pupils achieved the expected standard.

Our new scheme of work has also helped those pupils in Year 2 who had not achieved the standard by the end of Year 1. By the end of 2016 and 2017 respectively, all pupils in this group achieved the expected standard.
