In November 2022, Compass Point was inspected by OfSTED and we are delighted that the inspectors judged Compass Point to be a ‘Good School’. The inspectors were full of praise for every aspect of school life.
The inspectors particularly recognised the work that staff have been doing on developing all areas of the curriculum as well as providing exciting opportunities for our children to learn. As a staff team we are delighted that our hard work has been recognised. Inspectors said “School life is rich. There are many opportunities to take part in activities such as after school clubs, trips and events.”
They praised the inclusive ethos of the whole school including the resource base and explained that “Staff value every pupil and want them to feel that they belong. They work hard to build a community that helps pupils to flourish and do their best”.
The school received a Good grade in every aspect of its work,
Overall effectiveness - Good
The quality of education - Good
Behaviour and attitudes - Good
Personal development - Good
Leadership and management - Good
Early years provision - Good
We are so proud of each and every one of our children and the inspectors remarked how “pupils are caring and thoughtful of others” and how “pupils concentrate well in lessons and respect each other” - a true reflection of our wonderful school community.
As a school we are committed to continuing to improve our attendance figures. We know that low attendance continues to be a challenge for all schools during periods of high levels of illness. The inspectors had praise for the strategies currently being used to improve attendance and have asked that we continue to work on this key area.
