Year 2 phonics screening check in the autumn term 2020
Pupils who are now in year 2 must be checked using a past version of the phonics screening check during the second half of the autumn term 2020.
The outcomes of the check must be sent to the Local Authority in the usual way. The deadline for sending the information to the L.A. is 14th December 2020 so there is time for checking before submission to the DfE.

Assessment approaches need to promote learner engagement and ensure appropriate support so that all learners can achieve their aspirational goals and maximise their potential.
Assessment practices should be seen from the perspective of the learner. Learners should be engaged in all aspects of assessment processes and be afforded an element of choice and personalisation in showing that they have achieved the intended outcomes.
