What is Compass?

Compass is a school management system solution that allows parents and carers 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:

  • Monitor your child’s attendance, and enter an explanation for absences.
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers, and update your family contact details.
  • Monitor your child’s homework and assessment tasks.

You can access Compass via the parent portal website: and then search for South Halls Head Primary School. Or you can download the free app via the Apple App Store or Google Play.

A Guide for Parents & Families can be accessed via this link: which explains how to use the various modules within Compass.
