The Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards congratulates Blackwood staff and pupil's on their outstanding achievement in the 2018 phonics screening check. 96% of pupils at Blackwood School have reached or exceeded the pass mark in the phonics check.
Blackwood School is in the top 7% of all primary schools in the country!
He says that our success in teaching phonics and early reading so effectively means our children are developing a firm foundation in reading, from which they can become increasingly fluent and develop a lifelong love of reading.
Well done to everyone at Blackwood.
