Key Stage 1 Phonics

Key Stage 1 Phonics Report 2016

 

In year 1, all children nationally are required to take a phonic test.  This is delivered by the class teacher on a one to one basis.  The children read 40 words out of context; some of these are real words and some are “nonsense” words which can be read by applying phonic knowledge.  In order to achieve a pass mark, the child has to read 32 or more words correctly.

 

In 2016, 28 children were tested with each child being the equivalent of 3.6%.  We are delighted with these results which are our best to date and in line with national averages.  Strong phonic skills help children with the reading and writing and so these children are well placed for future learning.

 

The table below shows the school results for 2016 compared to national data for 2016. There has now been a threee year trend in which the school has been broadly in line the with national average.
