This management guide is intended to help headteachers and senior leaders in middle schools (8- to 13-year-old pupils) in England to manage the National Literacy, Numeracy, and Key Stage 3 Strategies in ways that are practical and coherent.

The guide has the following 10 sections: (1) Background: the National Strategies; (2) the approach to teaching and learning; (3) managing implementation; (4) monitoring the Strategies; (5) allocating curricular time; (6) using data; (7) supporting school transfer; (8) organizing intervention programs; (9) provision for able pupils; and (10) summary and points for action.
