Gordon Askew demonstrates his passion and commitment to every child being taught to read well by setting up a dedicated Twitter account and blog - inviting and welcoming discussion.

Outspoken views. Those children still being let down by our current education system need them!


He launches his new blog with an excellent posting about the Year One Phonics Screening Check in England:

Y1 Phonics Screening

I find it deeply concerning that so many in the profession still undervalue the statutory Y1 phonics screening check or, even worse, dismiss it with scornful derision.

Consider this. What if this county were faced with a widespread epidemic of some very serious illness, but one which could very successfully be treated if detected early enough? Would it not be sensible to screen all those at risk to identify potential problems in time to intervene effectively? And, if it were very difficult to distinguish individuals at risk at the early stage necessary for that successful treatment, would it not be the most efficacious (and responsible) course to provide universal screening for those in the potentially vulnerable category?
