Compass Parent Portal
Download our parent communication app.
Compass is our primary parent communication tool for day-to-day updates, upcoming events and notifications so it is essential that all parents and/or carers download the app when they join our school community.
If you haven't already, we ask that parents and/or carers download the Compass app onto your device for either Apple or Android. This will ensure we can continue to share information with you in a timely manner.
Compass is a web-based system allowing you to access up-to-date and meaningful information about our school and your child’s progress. Compass includes many different features, including the ability to:
- be informed of important updates, events and reminders
- view your child’s timetable
- review your child’s attendance
- provide explanations for periods of absence
- update your contact details
- book Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences.
Compass is accessible on any modern web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) or by using the Compass iOS or Android apps.
