Key stage 1: phonics screening check administration guidance
Check administration guidance (CAG) for headteachers and teachers administering and scoring the 2016 phonics screening check.
This guidance will be updated for the 2017 test cycle in April.
Use this information to:
- understand your statutory requirements for the phonics screening check
- plan for the check
- administer the check
- submit your school’s check results
The 2016 phonics screening check threshold mark is 32. Teachers should check each pupil’s mark against the threshold to establish whether they have achieved the expected standard.
