Statutory assessment in 2020 was cancelled due to Covid – 19
Cancellation of the phonics screening check in June 2020 means current year 2 pupils did not take the check in year 1. Schools will administer a past version of the check to year 2 pupils during the second half of the 2020 autumn term. Year 2 pupils who meet the expected standard in the autumn check will not be required to complete any further statutory assessments in phonics. Year 2 pupils who do not meet the expected standard in the autumn check will be expected to take the statutory check in June 2021.
