Phonics Outcomes

Phonics Outcomes in 2019

Phonics: The Phonics Screening is a check of pupil’s phonic knowledge. It is administered in June in Year 1 and monitors the percentage of pupils who have achieved the threshold standard - the expected progress.

Pupils who do not meet the standard in Year 1 re-take the Phonics Screening Check in Year 2.

The threshold standard for expected progress in 2019 was 32 out of 40 marks.

Since 2012 we have made significant improvements in our phonics standards over time. Since 2015 there was an ongoing upward trend and the school closed the gap with the National average year on year and in 2018 was above National average, a really huge achievement for us. In 2019 there was a decrease and we are now below the National average. it was identified as an Ofsted priority in January 2015. “Raise standards in Year 1 phonics”.  The school has rigorously made improvements to our phonics outcomes and phonics learning for our pupils and we will continue to do so.
