We hosted a very successful open day today to give future teachers the chance to hear about life in our seven schools and to see if Compass is a group in which they would like to work and develop.They heard from a range of staff across the Partnership, from executive headteachers and subject leaders, to NQT’s. Willow Dene School hosted the start of the morning, and our visitors then had the opportunity to visit some of the other schools in our group. We enjoyed meeting students from local universities and hope that the morning helped them with their next steps into teaching.
Here are some quotes from the day:
I really liked the child initiated focus of Compass and how well each member of staff felt supported.
Great to hear from teachers and leadership from across the group.
A warm, friendly welcome from staff. A great outlook on what education should be
From my first day within the Compass group I knew this was where I wanted to be. This Open Day has just further reinforced the fact I want to teach within the group!
Given a new outlook to the importance of partnership. Focus on professional development – especially for the NQT year.
The Compass open day has been inspiring and engaging
Thank you so much this morning has been very informative. Compass is definitely an organisation that I would like to be part of.
Very supportive environment. Inclusive ethos. Friendly at all levels of staffing
Made to feel inspired and confident in taking the next step with Compass
A useful overview of the schools…clearly an ambitious and forward thinking group of schools
