Much has changed and much is the same.
Secretary of State Michael Gove made his announcement today, in short:
- ICT remains a compulsory part of the curriculum until 2014, although, as expected, the current programmes of study and attainment targets are disapplied from September.
It seems that the new curriculum idea will "be much shorter to allow for the maximum level of innovation at school level in the development of content"
New draft Programmes of Study for primary English, Mathematics and Science have also been published today.
