The Impact of Monster Phonics on the Phonics Screening Check

thumbnail teacher 2

Congratulations to all our schools for yet another year of fantastic results!

We know how hard schools work to support their children and how results can often vary with cohort, particularly in small schools. We have seen an overwhelming increase in results on the phonics screen, helping teachers to feel rewarded after the pressures of ‘catch-up’ after lockdown. 

We often see the greatest jumps forward in schools new to Monster Phonics as the colour-coded support accelerates learning. This year we have seen up to a 43% increase in the first year in new schools with an average 11% improvement. Data like this helps schools know that their children will achieve with Monster Phonics 

Below are just a few of our many comments from schools about the impact

“We are proud of our Year 1 and 2 children who excelled in their PSC.  The impact Monster Phonics has had on our children, parents and staff is staggering.  This year we have seen the best ever PSC results and this is due to Monster Phonics and it being engaging, creative, fun and enjoyable for everyone – children, staff and parents.”

“We feel very passionate about Monster Phonics. The children thrive through using colour-coded monsters to support their learning of phonics. The learning materials are of high-quality. The children have a new love for reading, they are excited to get their phonics books out and find out which monster they are reading about that day! The monsters play a huge part in successful engagement in every lesson/intervention. We found the PSC materials Monster Phonics provided us with to be very helpful. Our results show the incredible impact Monster Phonics has had in our school – last year PSC 53% – this year 73%!!”

“The children at The Breakspear School have made excellent progress in reading using the Monster Phonics books and resources. The colour coding and different characters has really helped our children to get to grips with some of the more challenging elements of learning to read. The Monster phonics books are of high quality and the children are motivated to read them. We are very pleased that our phonics screening has increased by 10%.”

Schools who adopt Monster Phonics after one year see, on average, a jump off 11-15%
