What is Compass?
Compass is a web-based system that allows parents/carers and students to access up-to-date information about student progress, timetables, subjects, and teachers.

Compass is the point of entry for students to access their 'Learning Materials' along with teacher and subject details.

Class Learning Materials are housed on a learning platform called Moodle, if you have not used Moodle before - please watch the video in Step 4 - New to Moodle

Students - Step 1 - Read before logging in

Once logged into Compass you will see the Compass Home Page. In the menu bar, you have easy access to your School Email and School Calendar via the icons.

In the top right of the menu bar, next to the gear icon, you will see your initials in a blue circle - this is a link to your profile.
