School Description

Many pupils have experienced disruption to their learning prior to coming to Compass Community North. Since joining the school, the attendance of most pupils improves dramatically. Pupils settle quickly into established routines. Leaders encourage punctuality, smartness and regular attendance through rewards that pupils enjoy earning. This all helps to prepare pupils for their next stage in education and/or employment. Pupils say that they love this school. They willingly shake hands with visitors and make new people feel very welcome. Pupils are exceptionally well behaved both in lessons and during breaktimes and lunchtimes. They understand and know the behaviour system well. Staff recognise good behaviour, swiftly rewarding pupils when they make the right choice or display positive learning attitudes. Strong and positive relationships form quickly between pupils and staff. These relationships are based on mutual respect. Pupils feel safe. They are confident to ask for help or let a member of staff know when they have a worry or are not feeling their best. As a result, pupils trust staff and feel valued and important. Pupils benefit from a range of experiences that leaders carefully plan. Many of these are based on pupils’ personal interests. These range from visits to music studios and football museums to fencing activities. This offer builds pupils’ character and confidence, which shines through. Pupils are proud to show off their talents.
