Please see our EYFS (2018) KS1 & KS2 Teacher Assessment and Test Results between 2016 – 2018 below:
At Blenheim Primary School, great emphasis is placed on phonics and reading. Children in Reception, Years 1, and 2 are taught a high quality phonics session every day in addition to carefully planned guided reading sessions. We teach the Letters and Sounds curriculum through the use of Jolly Phonics and LCP Planning.
The new, statutory phonics screening check for all Year 1 pupils took place for the first time in June 2012. The phonics screening check is an assessment of phonic decoding. It consists of a list of 40 words, half real words and half non-words, which Year 1 children read to a teacher. The check is designed to confirm whether individual pupils have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard and have grasped the essential skills that underpin good reading.
