(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order provides for attainment targets and programmes of study for Art and Design at the third key stage.
This Order gives effect to the document “Art and design Programme of study: key stage 3”, published by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (“the Authority”) on 30th August 2007, for the purposes of specifying the attainment targets and programme of study for the third key stage (article 3).
This Order revokes the Education (National Curriculum) (Attainment Targets and Programmes of Study in Art and Design) (England) Order 2000, SI 2000/1602 (“the 2000 Order”) in so far as it has effect for the purposes of specifying the attainment targets and programmes of study for Art and Design 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 2000 Order.
This Order makes saving provisions as follows:
(a) For any pupil who started studying Art and Design 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 2000 Order continues to apply to such pupils (article 5(2)(a));
(a) For any pupil who starts studying Art and Design 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 2000 Order continues to apply for the purposes of specifying attainment targets for the third key stage in relation to Art and Design (article 5(2)(b)).
