ICT Attainment - National Averages at KS1/KS2?

    Hello everyone
    I am the subject leader for ICT in our primary school. I was wondering whether there was any information available about attainment in ICT nationally. I need to prove that our children are making good progress (done) and then compare attainment to a local or national average/expectation (in the way that we do for Literacy/Numeracy), but am not sure that this information exists. Any help or ideas you can give would be much appreciated!

    Data on national attainments is not collected, I seriously doubt that it is locally either. Who is asking you to provide the comparison? perhaps ask them to provide you with the local+national attainment data they wish you to compare your school against?
    The only national expectation I am aware of is in the NC: a majority of pupils (80%?) level 2 at end of KS1, level 4 at end of KS2, which leaves all the other years a bit blank.
    Many LAs and schools have made up their own sub-levels and then determined their own expectations and if you are happy to have graphs as indicators of attainment you might consider that route.
  3. Thanks, that is what I had been thinking as well, but before I approach our Curriculum Lead I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything.
