Autumn 2020 – Year 2 Phonics | Connect-Up Education


Due to the COVID pandemic, the Department for Education and Standards and Testing Agency delayed the assessment and return of the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check which was due in June 2020. The Phonics Screening assessment data is to be collected for the present Year 2 pupils that missed the June collection when they were in Year 1. At schools discretion, a choice of the past papers from 2017, 2018 or 2019 can be used for the screening. Schools should NOT return results to their local authority, until AFTER the SIMS Autumn 2020 Upgrade to SIMS.net 7.196 has been applied as there is a special CTF export type Phonics Test Results (For Autumn Term 2020 Screening Check Only) to be used which will become available in the upgrade. **However, you may, if you wish to enter the screening results into the mark sheet prior to the upgrade but you cannot export the CTF until after the upgrade has been applied.
