The current national curriculum programmes of study for ICT at key stages 3 and 4 have been disapplied with effect from 1 September 2012 and are no longer statutory. This means that schools are free to develop their own curriculums for ICT that best meet the needs of their pupils, in preparation for the introduction of the new national curriculum from September 2014. ICT remains a compulsory national curriculum subject at all 4 key stages in 2013/14. From September 2014 it will be replaced by computing, with new statutory programmes of study.

The disapplied programmes of study for ICT at key stages 3 and 4, and the attainment target level descriptions, are accessible from the links in these page.
