School Performance


Teachers assess pupils’ abilities in each of the 17 areas of the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS) framework against the EYFS Early Learning Goal (ELG) descriptors. They attend local authority moderation meetings with other schools and the school’s assessments are moderated periodically by the local authority too. Moderation is the process of ensuring that assessments made are aligned with national expectations and are thus accurate. The school’s ELG judgements were moderated in 2019.

GLD = A Good Level of Development.

This is a national measure and is the proportion of pupils gaining 'Expected' or higher in the Prime areas and in Maths & Literacy.

Phonics Screening Test 2023

The Year 1 phonics screening check is an assessment for all children in Year 1 (typically aged 6).  All state-funded schools with a Year 1 cohort must administer the checks.

The test was administered to Year 1 pupils of Al-Noor Primary School by their class teachers during June 2023. In 2023, pupils were deemed to have met the required standard in phonics if they scored 32 or more out of a possible 40 in the test. 


Key Stage One Results 2023

The expected standard on subjects that are ‘teacher assessed’ is set out in the DfE’s assessment framework.

Staff attended training in moderation standards this year, as they do annually. The school’s assessment of KS1 standards was also moderated by the local authority this year. Moderation is the process of ensuring that assessments made are aligned with national expectations and are thus accurate. Every school is expected to be moderated once every four years and local authorities are required to moderate the assessments of 25% of their schools each year, usually in a four-year cycle.


** Science is only assessed up to the expected standard and not above.

Multiplication Tables Check 2023

This test is administered in June to year 4 pupils.

The purpose of the check is to determine whether children can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It also helps schools to identify if a child may need additional support. There is no pass mark for the test but the DfE has started to publish the average point score per pupil and the proportion of a school’s year 4 cohort achieving full marks. Children sit an online test of 25 questions and are given a mark for the number of questions they answer correctly.
