Summary This programme follows the work of support staff and teachers dedicated to raising attainment at David Lister School in Hull. Former head of year, John Munson was appointed as strand coordinator for attainment during a radical shake-up of the school's management system. His task now is to make sure every one of the 1300 pupils reaches their personal targets. To do this the school utilises an extensive database which tracks the progress of each child in every lesson. If any pupil starts to fall below their targets, John can identify them straight away and put in place an action plan. He does this with the help of colleagues such as subject teachers, learning mentors and teaching assistants. Together they offer a range of options including booster classes, revision sessions, one on one tuition, and even alternatives to regular exams. The initiatives have proved to be a great success, resulting in a doubling of GCSE A-C grades from 24% to 50% in 2005
