Windsor Park CE Middle School has been using Accelerated Reader and Star Reading since 2013. In 2021 the school introduced Freckle to promote maths engagement and accelerated maths practice amongst pupils throughout Key Stage 2.

Since implementing Freckle, both attainment and math progress for last year's year-six cohort were classed as sig+. This means that they were significantly better than national averages.
