Arnbrook Primary

The Aquinas Foundation have been working closely with Arnbrook Primary school for a few years now and have seen a massive change in the school’s attendance. Attendance was one of their weaker areas and so we looked at different incentives and ideas that could help raise the attendance levels and these have worked tremendously!

At Arnbrook we serve a local area of significant disadvantage; 45% of our pupils qualify for Free School Meals. Historically, Arnbrook has had issues with attendance and punctuality. Aquinas have provided our school with a whole host of prizes, free passes and gifts for the last two years as rewards for our children for excellent attendance. The response from our children for such prizes has been absolutely fantastic and many parents and carers comment on the quality of the attendance awards we present to the children. The impact of the donations from Aquinas have led to a sea-change in the attitude of the school community towards attendance; children want to be in school, every day, on time and parents and carers do all they can to ensure their children don’t miss a session! Attendance has improved across the school thanks to the incentives provided, leading to healthier, happier children with improved outcomes for all. A huge thank you from all at Arnbrook for your continued support!

“The biggest difference so far is during march madness we had attendance over 95% that might have been the first time in a few years!” Jill Millar (Attendance officer)
