Key Stage 3

ICT and personal, learning and thinking skills

The aims of the curriculum are that young people should become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. The development of personal, learning and thinking skills (PLTS) is an essential part of meeting these aims. PLTS have considerable impact on young people's ability to enter work and adult life as confident and capable individuals who can make a positive contribution.

The ICT programme of study provides opportunities to plan sequences of work, learning outcomes and teaching approaches to ensure PLTS form an integral part of subject teaching and learning.
