Phonics Screening Test

Phonics Screening Test


The Phonics Screening Test is administered to Year One pupils during the summer term.

This academic year the phonics screening week will be Monday 10th June – Friday 14th June 2024. Every Year 1 child across England will take their Phonics Screening Test during this week. The Phonics Screening Test requires the children to use the skills that they have learnt, to read a range of real and nonsense words. Again, this will not be described as a ‘test’ to the children and will be administered within school as a 1:1 activity. You will then receive notification in your child’s end of year school report as to whether they passed or failed the test. If they do not pass the test in Year 1 then they are able to retake the test in Year 2 after further phonics support and interventions.
