The national curriculum programmes of study for ICT at key stages 1 and 2  have been disapplied with effect from 1 September 2012 and are no longer statutory.

This means that schools are free to develop their own curricula for ICT that best meet the needs of their pupils, or to continue to follow the existing programmes of study if they so choose. ICT remains a compulsory National Curriculum subject at all four key stages. Revised programmes of study for ICT will come into force in September 2014.

The current programme of study for ICT at key Stages 1 and 2, and the attainment target level descriptions are accessible from these pages.
