Compass Community Schools welcomes referrals from Local Authorities and directly from parents and carers, as well referrals for pupils with placements in Compass Children’s Homes and with Compass Foster Carers.
Before a student starts their placement at a Compass Community School, we endeavour to gather as much information as we can about the them to ensure that can support them in the right way, right away. This includes their most recent EHCP or PEP where present, school reports, EP Assessments and anything else that might help us to understand the child. We also request end of KS2 results so we can build an accurate picture of a pupil’s individual needs and set suitably challenging targets. We seek input from all appropriate parties including parents and carers, previous schools and all other professionals in a child’s network.
