Phonics Screening

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, there are no formal assessment results for the Academic Year 2019/20. Our official, standing Phonics Screening results are as published below, from the 2018/19 Academic Year.

During the Summer Term, 2019, Year 1 and some Year 2 children, at Edith Cavell Primary School, undertook the Phonics Screening. The results were as follows:-

YearYear 1  Year 2  Year 1 & Year 2  End of Year 2 
Nat  81    
Nat  82    92

2018 – 43 children

2019 – 41 children

WT – Working towards the expected standard

WA – Working at the expected standard


These collective results represented what each of our children attained on a particular day during the Summer Term 2019. Some factors influencing the attainment would have been:-

Intellectual ability, number of terms in full-time education, ability to concentrate, teacher input, maturity level, pre-school educational provision e.g. Nursery, and performance on the day.
