EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order provides for attainment targets and programmes of study for Design and Technology at the third key stage.

This Order gives effect to the document “Design and technology Programme of study: key stage 3”, published by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (“the Authority”) on 30th August 2007, for the purposes of specifying attainment targets and the programme of study for the third key stage (article 3).

This Order revokes the Education (National Curriculum) (Attainment Targets and Programmes of Study in Design and Technology in respect of the First, Second and Third Key Stages) (England) (No 2) Order 2004, SI 2004/1794 (“the 2004 Order”) in so far as it has effect for the purposes of specifying the attainment targets and programmes of study for Design and Technology at the third key stage (article 5). The attainment targets and programmes of study for the first and second key stages are unchanged by this Order and continue to be specified in the 2004 Order.

This Order makes saving provisions as follows:

(a)For any pupil who started studying Design and Technology at key stage 3 before 1st August 2008, the provisions of this Order which give effect to the Key Stage 3 Document do not apply. The 2004 Order continues to apply to such pupils (article 5(2)(a));

(a)For any pupil who starts studying Design and Technology at key stage 3 on or after 1st August 2008 and who has special educational needs and is working below level 1 of the national curriculum levels of attainment, the 2004 Order continues to apply for the purposes of specifying attainment targets for the third key stage in relation to Design and Technology (article 5(2)(b)).
