Can the DfES Stickman model actually help schools deal with under-attainment and personalised learning? Find out as headteachers and staff from two schools give the approach a road test.
Developed by Sue Hackman, chief adviser for School Standards at the DfES, the Stickman approach is designed to help schools shift those pupils who are not reaching national expectations.

Back in their schools, staff test the approach, incorporating it alongside existing tracking methods and a range of more personalised strategies for moving these pupils forward.
