School Leaders – Guide your school with clarity and certainty.

Running a school takes coordination of people, processes, information and of course students. So why rely on multiple, old systems to run the show? Compass rolls a range of functions into a single platform, giving you a clear view of what’s going on at school across learning and assessment, wellbeing, and business performance.

Parents and Carers – Be more involved in your child’s school experience.

Parent and teacher communication plays a significant role in a child’s learning experience. The Compass app enables parents to engage closely with school to see how their child is performing and feeling, book their next teacher conference, pay fees easily, and get ready for the next excursion. The Compass app gives busy parents access to everything they need to know.

Teachers – Focus on what you do best.

Teachers are the main ingredient to a successful student experience, so why not free them from manual admin? Compass digitises almost every aspect of learning and assessment. From planning term curriculums, setting learning tasks, sharing resources, and reporting to parents on how students are progressing. Time spent teaching is time better spent.

Business Managers – Deep data insights are just a click away.

No two days are the same for Business Managers. Compass helps you work smarter, no matter what’s thrown at you. And, with complete visibility of everything from payments, to budgets, processes and staff resourcing – you can manage operations with confidence.
