The school management system we use at IPS is Compass. Compass provides the school community with a range of facilities which streamline communication and provide enhanced access to information.

As this is our first year we will continue to implement further features in steps as they are developed. Parents play an important role in this initiative. It is essential that you log in at least once a week to keep up to date with future events and access the news feed.

Currently Compass facilities at IPS include:

1. UPDATE YOUR DETAILS THROUGH THE PORTAL

Change of email addresses and mobile phone numbers can be easily updated as we will use these to send communication emails to families.

2. EXCURSIONS/INCURSIONS

Approve and pay for your child’s participation in excursions/incursions and other special events (these are electronic permissions – there is no need to print off permission slips).

3. PARENT PAYMENT & FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

You are able to pay School Fees (compulsory payments, digital technologies co-contribution and voluntary payments) online.

4. PERMISSIONS

Give permission for your child to attend local excursions, to have photo/audio/video recordings taken and used at school, and to agree to the ICT / DLT computer usage.

5. NEWS FEED

Newsletters will be available online and a link sent to via Compass. The school will post news to remind you about events and activities at the school. Eventually your news feed will be customised, showing only the information relevant to you and your children.

6. ATTENDANCE

View your child’s attendance online, approve absences and indicate future

absences. Each family listed in the school administration database has a unique login for Compass.

 

We are developing this page on the IPS website with links and tutorials designed to help us all get to know and become comfortable with the system however sometimes it’s less confronting just to ask so please…

Any questions or problems just contact Lisa at the office or by email to the school.
