School Description

Pupils enjoy being part of the safe, welcoming and caring community at Compass Community School, Lancashire. They contribute to the respectful and positive environment that is in place at the school. Staff are suitably ambitious about what pupils should aim for in subjects such as English, mathematics and science. Pupils respond well to these expectations in some of their lessons. However, staff’s aspirations are not high enough for pupils’ learning in some other subjects. This limits pupils’ achievement. Pupils get high levels of attention from staff. Pupils feel that they matter at this school. They look forward to the social times during the day when they have the chance to chat with their friends and staff. Pupils enjoy and appreciate the opportunities that they have to explore their wider interests through trips and visits. However, they do not get consistently high-quality opportunities to support all aspects of their personal development. Pupils attend school regularly. They quickly build positive relationships with staff and other pupils when they join the school. Staff and pupils show interest in one another. This helps pupils to gain confidence and builds their self-esteem. Pupils appreciate all that staff do to support their needs and interests. Pupils feel safe and happy at school. They treat each other well and poor behaviour is rare. Staff deal with unacceptable behaviour, including bullying and name-calling, expertly. Consequently, all pupils told inspectors that they have not experienced any bullying at school.
