Showing 1-1 of 1

Year 1 is when pupils begin learning the content of the National Curriculum. At the end of Year 1 children will be assessed on their phonic knowledge via the government's statutory Phonics Screening Check.

This assessment is carried out on a 1-to-1 basis, usually with the class teacher.

Parents/carers are informed of the result and what this means with their child's end of year report.


Year 2 is the children's final year in Key Stage 1.

It is also the year of the government's statutory End of Key Stage assessments in reading, writing and mathematics

Any children who didn't pass the Phonics Screening Check at the end of Year 1 will be assessed on this again.
