We are pleased to advise that the Compass School Management system is now in operation at Upper Ferntree Gully. Compass provides our school community with a range of facilities that will streamline communication and provide enhanced access to information. It will also improve many of the school's administration processes.
Compass will become the primary communication tool between the school and home. Parents will be able to log in to Compass via the school website, the Compass website (https://uppergullyps-vic.compass.education) or via smartphone and tablet apps.
The following tasks are now available for parents to access:
Parents will play an important role in the success of this initiative. It will be essential that parents log in regularly to access newsletters, news feeds and more. Compass is intended to be self-explanatory and easy to use (many families in our community already use the system in their secondary schools) and instructions for some of the more routine tasks will be posted here for your convenience. However, if you require assistance please contact the school office.
We use Facebook to share events and special activities that occur at our school. This is updated regularly and is also a way we communicate and celebrate the special things that happen at Upper Ferntree Gully Primary School.
Seesaw gives families an immediate and personalized window into their child's school day, helping to answer: "What did you do at school today?"
Our Classroom teachers use Seesaw as both a communication tool and a learning journal for students. It is a great way to link instantly between school and home and share your child's learning.
Seesaw is accessed via the use of a code. You can speak to the classroom teacher about accessing your child's class.
