Things you need to know

In 2017/18, there were 664,499 pupils in year 1 and 664,100 pupils in year 2.

In both years 1 and 2, ethnicity was known for 99% of pupils. The broad ethnic breakdown was as follows:

  • 75% of pupils were White
  • 11% were Asian
  • 6% were Mixed
  • 5% were Black
  • 0.5% were Chinese
  • 2% were from the Other ethnic group

School-level data is not published for phonics.

Results for the Isles of Scilly and the City of London, which have only one school each, are not included in local authority breakdowns.

This data only includes pupils in state-funded schools.

What the data measures

This data measures the percentage of pupils who met the expected standard in the phonics screening check in both:

  • year 1 (when pupils are 5 to 6 years old)
  • year 2 (when pupils are 6 to 7 years old)

The year 2 results include both pupils who:

  • met the expected standard in year 1
  • retook the check or were taking it for the first time in year 2

Phonics is an approach to teaching reading in which pupils sound out words and combine sound-spelling patterns.

The phonics screening check is designed to confirm that pupils have met an appropriate standard in phonics.

The ethnic categories used in this data

This data uses categories from the Department for Education’s school census. These groupings are based on the 2001 Census of England and Wales, with 3 exceptions:

  • Traveller of Irish Heritage and Gypsy/Roma children have been separated into 2 categories
  • Sri Lankan pupils are included in the Asian/Asian British group but don’t have a separate category
  • Chinese pupils are included in a separate category from Asian

These changes were made after consultations with local authorities and lobby groups.

Data is reported for broad and detailed ethnic categories. These are

Asian/Asian British:

  • Indian
  • Pakistani
  • Bangladeshi
  • Sri Lankan
  • Other Asian background

Black/African/Caribbean/Black British:

  • Black African
  • Black Caribbean
  • Black Other

Mixed/Multiple ethnic groups:
