Compass Transition for Parents

We are currently in the process of moving our School Management System from Sentral to Compass. We are looking forward to the benefit of having a program that will better serve our school community and look forward to learning more about the program throughout Term 4.

Compass is a management system that is used widely throughout Victorian Schools, including Richmond High School, where many students continue onto.

Abbotsford Primary School will be using Compass to mark attendance, send notifications, write reports and record other welfare issues specific to students. As parents you can notify the school of your child’s absence, communicate with the school, pay for excursions and other required payments via their online payment system and provide consent through your phone via their app.

We will begin using Compass from the beginning of Term 4 - Monday 4th October 2021.

From this time, please communicate with the school via Compass as Sentral will no longer be in use. We encourage you to download the Compass App and refer to the link below to get more information and to get you started on our Compass journey!

To log in you will require your unique family username and password. We will send you your log in details during the second week of the holidays so please stay tuned!

Upon first login, you will be required to change your password and confirm your email address and mobile phone number. These details may be used by our school for SMS, password recovery and email communication throughout the year.

We are currently in the preliminary stages of setting up Compass and so please be patient with us. This means that when you log in, you will likely only see minimal information at this stage.

Please understand that we are also learning this new system and do not know everything yet! We aim to have it fully functional by the start of 2022 and look forward to making our Compass journey alongside you all!
