Save the Children report that Wokingham is one of only five constituencies where reading results have regressed over the past ten years. I would like to congratulate our three badge schools in this area. In the phonic screening check they achieved:
- 93% Beechwood Primary School
- 88% Whiteknights Primary School
- 82% St Sebastian’s C of E Primary School
Overall, Wokingham only achieved 70% in the phonics screening check - 4 percentage points behind the expected standard.
“At Beechwood Primary School 100% of disadvantaged children achieved the required standard in every statutory reading assessment in 2014. 15% of the school’s intake is disadvantaged compared to 5% across Wokingham. We are very proud of our results.”
Gareth James, Deputy Headteacher
