At the end of Year 1, the students will undertake a Phonics Screening Check. This check is administered by the class teacher and is designed to confirm whether your child has learnt phonics decoding to an age appropriate level. It will identify students who need additional help to improve their decoding skill. The check consists of 20 real word and 20 words that are pseudo- words (we call these alien words) that your child will read aloud to the teacher.

For those children who do not pass in Year one, they will retake in Year two.
