Year 1 Phonics Screening 2023

In June 2023, the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test is scheduled to take place for all children in Year 1 in England.


Who takes the 2023 Phonics Screening Test?

The 2023 Phonics Screening will be taken by children in Year 1, the first year of Key Stage 1.


When is the Phonics Screening Test 2023?

Schools have the freedom to choose a day within the week commencing 12th June 2023. As some schools are larger than others, the test can take place on one day or across several days.

Teachers will administer the tests within that week and submit teacher assessment data shortly afterwards to the Primary Assessment Gateway (PAG).
