* The Department for Education and Employment is expanding its programme of 1,200 literacy and numeracy summer schools with the launch of a pound;1 million pilot scheme of 25 summer schools in July and August. They include the Kirklees local education authority summer school, which involves 600 eight to 16-year-olds in a range of subjects, including numeracy; and Brookfield High School, Knowsley, which will provide for 215 pupils aged 10 to 16 and targets physically disabled students.
