School ICT to be replaced by computer science programme
The current information and communications technology (ICT) curriculum in England's schools is a "mess" and must be radically revamped, the education secretary has announced.

He will begin a consultation next week on the new computing curriculum.
He said this would create young people "able to work at the forefront of technological change".
