St Margaret's at Troy Town CE Primary School


At St Margaret's at Troy Town, our pupils learn to read and write using the Read Write Inc. (RWI) Phonics Programme which is a systematic programme for the teaching of phonics, reading, spelling and writing. We want all pupils to begin their journey to read with confidence, develop a love of reading and apply their skills competently to writing.


The chart below provides an insight into the expected levels of development within Phonics, term-by-term from Year R to Year 2.

Phonics Screening Check

In the Summer Term all Year 1 children will take the Phonics Screening Check. The purpose of the phonics screening check will be to confirm that all children have learned phonic decoding to an age-appropriate standard. Children who have not reached this level should receive extra support from their school to ensure they can improve their decoding skills, and will then have the opportunity to retake the phonics screening check.
