Discussion of the Government's plans for a new phonics test for 6-year-olds

Date: 18 January 2011 Time: 1.00 pm -

Venue: C89 (meeting room 7) County South

The Coalition Government's Education White Paper contains plans for a phonics test for 6 year olds. The results of this test would be included in the RAISE online data analysis. This means the test would be very high stakes and that there will now be national reading assessments of children at 5, 6 and 7 years old in English schools. There is currently a consultation procedure underway. I will briefly introduce the plans and the response of the UK Literacy Association before opening a discussion. Whether interested as a parent, or as an academic concerned with literacy, early childhood education or processes of policy-making and public consultation we hope you will join us in discussion and indeed in responding to the consultation.
