How Time for Phonics helped St James' Catholic Primary School
Since it is now around a year since our first schools started using Time for Phonics to help children read fluently, we now have some compelling data to support the efficacy of TFP.
Shelley Lee, phonics lead at St James' Catholic Primary School, Lancashire.
Only 70% of last year's cohort passed the phonics screening check. Those children are now in year 2 and since using Time for Phonics, all have passed the screening check.
In the year 1 cohort, 88% of children passed, with the children that didn't pass having significant additional needs or only recently having joined the school.
That is an 18% uplift in just one year of using Time for Phonics!
A child that joined my class in the spring term with little knowledge of phase 3 (in year 1), has been very engrossed in the multi-sensory approach to the scheme, and has passed the screening check with full marks!
