[https://www.gov.uk/government/news/phonics-screening-check-threshold-published-today] here - definitely 32.
I'm very relieved as thought it easier this year - our results have gone up from 56% last year to 84% this year.

Released today. 32 again.

My class scored 83% pass rate. Year One at my school last year (before I got there) scored 67%, so massive improvement!

Oh my god. Sorry for the massive delay... I found it later on last Monday.

Thanks everyone! It meant we got 75% this year! up again on last year so we are v chuffed!

I think it was much easier this year? Anyone agree? I had SEN children who I would not have believed would pass, get 37! And my top chn get 34.... They were trying to convert the pseudo words into real words, as per. angry but overall was v pleased. grin
