School Description

Pupils get a fresh start at Compass Community School Hereford. Leaders know that pupils’ education has been difficult in the past, so they do all they can to create a safe and welcoming environment. Adults take time to get to know pupils really well. They listen to pupils’ wishes and feelings. This means staff understand the things that are important to pupils. Pupils told inspectors that this is helping them to learn. They said that the staff are ‘amazing’, and they enjoy coming to school. Leaders expect pupils to be respectful and positive. Pupils live up to these expectations. They are polite, kind and well mannered. They behave exceptionally well around school and in class. Everyone agrees that bullying doesn’t happen. If pupils fall out, adults help them to resolve any disagreements quickly. Should bullying arise, leaders have effective procedures in place to deal with it. The school goes beyond the expected in order to give pupils a wide range of experiences. These experiences include boxing, chess club, looking after the school chickens and volunteering in the local community. Pupils make the most of these opportunities. They said that they ‘make a big difference’ to their lives.
