Phonics Screening

Phonics Screening 

Phonics screening is a national requirement set by the government. It will be carried out in school by a familiar member of staff in the summer term. The screening is made up of pseudowords – the children will know it as “alien words” as well as real words. During the screening children will be asked to read 40 words, last year the expected standard was 32/40, however this can change as the pass mark is not revealed to teachers until after the screening.  

Examples of Pseudowords but known as alien words to children.
