Phonics Vision Statement
At Worstead Primary School we believe that every child should have the chance to become a confident and fluent reader. It is vitally important that our children have a secure understanding of the systematic synthetic phonics approach to learning to read. Phonics skills need to be developed in a systematic, staged approached in order to help all children achieve their potential.
We follow the latest Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Programme, approved by the DfE from September 2021.
Year 1 Phonics Screening Check: The National Phonics Screening Check is performed in June of Year 1. The purpose of the screening check is to confirm that all children have learned phonic decoding to an age appropriate standard. The children who did not meet the required standard for the check in year 1 enter again in year 2.
