Children in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 6 will complete statutory assessments in 2019.
The phonics screening test will take place in the week beginning Monday 10th June 2019. Your child will sit with his/her teacher and read aloud 40 words, which will include made up words, to check that he/she has learnt phonic decoding to the expected standard. There will be a parents' meeting arranged early in 2019 where you will be able to find out more about the test and hear from your child's teacher how you can help them to be successful. You are most welcome to speak with your child's class teacher at any time about how to support their reading development at home.

We will be holding a number of parents' meetings and workshops, during which you will find out more about the tests and hear from your child's teacher how you can help them to prepare.
