Strand 3: Communicating information

This is one of four strands within the Framework for secondary ICT, which is designed to help you focus your planning, teaching and assessment throughout Key Stages 3 and 4.

It is linked to the learning objectives, which you can filter according to year, strand and substrand (this includes extension objectives).

It contains a summary of the knowledge, skills and understanding that you can expect pupils to have experienced when they begin Key Stage 3. It also contains suggestions for focused activities that you can plan with other departments to reinforce pupils’ development across the curriculum.

You can also access a set of activities from Ensuring pupil progress: Progress in substrand 3.3: Communicating to help pupils make progress in secondary ICT. These materials focus on progression from level 4 to 5, and from level 5 to 6 in the exemplified substrand.
