Compass Learning Centre is a ‘good school’ (Ofsted May 2019) and a successful Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), part of the Alternative Provision (AP) in education. It is fully supported by a committed Management Committee who work closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. The Pupil Admission Number (PAN) is currently 64. The number of students on roll varies throughout the year dependent on the number of referrals from schools within the Weymouth and Portland area and from Dorset Council.
Students who attend Compass Learning Centre predominantly experience difficulties engaging in a mainstream school and come to us with a variety of additional needs. The centre caters for students who have been permanently excluded from a mainstream school, individuals with medical conditions that prevent attendance at mainstream schools and a few pupils without access to regular education. A number of students are admitted with an Education Health Care Plan, a few are in the care of the local authority and others attend for a fixed period of time on a Dual Registration basis. We serve the wider West Dorset community, however the majority of students who attend Compass come from the Weymouth and Portland area.
Some students follow short-term, work-related social development or resilience building courses at Rylands Farm, Greenwood Carpentry, Max Events, A-Z and Weymouth Sailing Academy. All students are offered full-time programmes. However, the time spent in school is tailored to meet individual students’ needs.
