Year 1 Phonics Screening Check: Reminder
In 2012 a statutory check, Year 1 Phonics Screening Check was introduced. The check, administered in June, assesses phonics knowledge learnt in Reception and in Year 1. It was developed to help identify the children who need extra help with decoding and blending before they begin Year 2.
If you have not yet visited our school Phonics page (Parents – Resources for Home Learning – Read, Write, Inc.), please take a look at all the useful information available to help your child. Visit this web page (Click here) if you have not yet done so.

Welcome to Watling Park School, a new primary free school which opened with two Reception classes in September 2015. The school will grow organically to its full capacity of 420 pupils in 2021.
As well as state-of-the-art facilities for pupils and staff, this new building brings fresh investment into the area, not just for the pupils at the school, but also the local community. A 3g pitch is being constructed to use as a multi-use area by school and local community in evenings and at weekends. It is our ambition to offer free or low-cost community use of the facilities to local groups for at least 2 sessions a week, with access every evening and weekend.
We are proud of the high-quality education this new school offers along with the before and after school clubs which enhance the opportunity for our pupils. Pupils at Watling Park School are nurtured and guided through school life; we aim to stimulate and inspire our children, develop their interests and equip them with lifelong learning skills.
Everything we do is underpinned by our school values: I CARE
We offer exciting opportunities for ambitious teachers to join our expanding school and to develop their own careers, with support from myself and senior leaders. If you are interested in working in the school, please do contact us directly. We would be delighted to hear from you.
With best wishes,
Ms Sonia Mallick, Acting Headteacher
