Publishers of Systematic Synthetic Phonics Programmes must complete a self-assessment process based on criteria, which are then reviewed by independent evaluators.

A total of 9 systematic synthetic phonics programmes were validated in July 2021 and a further 6 were validated in December 2021.  A further 4 programmes  are currently validated through previous self-assessment (2011-2014) and ‘Importance of Phonics catalogue’ (2011-2013) routes and remain validated until March 2022.

There is no statutory requirement for schools to choose one of the SSP programmes on the validated list. However, validation status indicates that a programme has been self-assessed by its publisher and judged by a small panel with relevant expertise and that both consider it to meet all of the DFE criteria for an effective systematic synthetic phonics programme.

 A complete systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) programme is one that provides:

  • all that is essential to teach SSP to children in reception and key stage 1 years of mainstream primary schools
  • sufficient support for children in reception and key stage 1 to become fluent readers
  • a structured route for most children to meet or exceed the expected standard in the year one phonics screening check
  • all national curriculum expectations for word reading through decoding by the end of key stage 1

 

The following is the current list of validated SSP programmes:
