Support with the Year 2 Phonics Screening Check

What is the Phonics Screening Check?

Children complete a word-reading check at the end of Year 1 so that parents can be confident their children are being taught to read successfully.

  

Children read 40 words. It takes between two and five minutes.

 

If they do not manage to read 32 of the words, they are given extra support, and repeat the check at the end of Year 2.

 

The 'pass' mark of 32 is subject to change by the government and schools will be notified some time in June of this figure.

A guide to alien words used in our Year 2 Phonics Screening Check Revision lessons. These lessons review Phases 4 and 5 to help children confidently read the words in the Phonics Screening Check
