Attendance & Wellbeing

Attendance and wellbeing are complex, interconnected issues, but keeping track of this information shouldn’t have to be difficult. Compass has made sure of that.

Attendance management

We get it. Keeping up with attendance can be time-consuming, no matter how necessary it is. Compass helps you save time and effort with a secure, streamlined system to mark the roll.

Skipping school never goes unnoticed

With an automated SMS message sent to parents and carers when their child is absent without an explanation, it’s quick and easy to clear up any issues with unexplained absences.

    Transform roll marking

    Leave paper rolls behind and utilise online roll marking for accurate, time-stamped recordings of attendance. Even better: attendance management on Compass can ensure full compliance with legislative attendance monitoring, taking the stress out of audits.

      Attendance analysis made easy

      From individual student attendance summaries to whole school reports, we have a wide range of methods to export attendance records. Choose from one of our pre-made report templates, or export the data into your preferred tool and analyse attendance to gain actionable insights to make informed decisions.

        Simplify behaviour reporting

        Think of our wellbeing monitoring function as a digital post-it note system, making the tracking of individual student behaviour and wellbeing one of the easiest parts of your day.

        Observations for all occasions

        Whether Olivia is excelling in class or Jayden has been late to lessons, there is a lot you will need to report on a day-to-day basis. Our broad range of options makes it easy to report on progress, behaviours and attitudes across a student’s time at school.

        Take score of student behaviour

        Take advantage of our ready-made templates to help keep consistent reports across the board for your students. Our positive and negative point system has been designed to help you keep track of student success, or indicate the need for improvement.

          You can keep it confidential

          There will always be times you need to record sensitive information. If what you’re recording is confidential, and never intended for the eyes of students or parents, we’ve made sure you can keep it behind closed doors.

            Take the pain out of sickbay

            Putting the aid in first aid: managing your school’s sickbay is simplified with our easy check-in and check-out system. From reporting the details to printing a sick note, we’ll make your school’s sickbay process pain-free, allowing staff to focus on providing much-needed care.

            Select symptoms in seconds

            Writing up a report takes away time that could be spent looking after them. Compass allows you to select their symptoms, note the severity, report on the treatment and make any additional comments, allowing you to complete a sickbay report in seconds.

              Keep parents and carers informed

              Fewer emergency calls makes it easier for everyone to focus on welfare: minimise the concern of parents or carers by automatically informing them when their child is checked into (or out of) the sickbay.

                Make sure attendance is covered

                Don’t leave his teacher wondering why Tommy hasn’t turned up to English: automatically create an attendance note for a student during their time in sickbay, or if they depart the school after their visit.
