Unlocking Letters and Sounds
In April 2022, we began to implement the new validated SSP, Unlocking Letters and Sounds. This is taught daily in EYFS and Year 1 with interventions further up the school for those children who benefit from further support with phonics.
Towards the end of Year 1, children take a Phonics Screening Test consisting of 40 decodable real and alien words. Children have an opportunity to retake this test in Year 2.
