We believe that learning is a partnership between home and school.  Seesaw helps parents keep up to date with what children are learning and it helps staff celebrate the amazing journey that happens in the classroom.  You can also communicate with your child’s teacher using Seesaw.  When your child starts school, you will be provided with login details including username and password.



At Clayton North PS we use the Compass school management system to allow parents and carers to access up-to-date and meaningful information about our school and your child’s progress.  Compass includes many different features, including the ability to:

  • Monitor your child’s attendance, and enter an explanation for absence or lateness
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers
  • View your child’s timetable and the school calendar
  • Download and view your child’s academic reports
  • Book parent-teacher conferences
  • Pay and provide consent for events and school fees.

Compass is accessible on any web browser ( ) or by using the Compass iOS or Android apps.  Parents will be provided login details once their child starts school.



Our school newsletter is published every 3 weeks during school term and posted to our school website.  A Compass message is sent to families notifying them of the latest newsletter post.


The newsletter is the official journal of the school, containing important notices and items of interest from classes, specialist teachers, parents and the community. By reading your newsletter, you will be kept informed of many activities and developments in the school as they happen. 


Interviews/Conferences and Reports

Formal parent/teacher contact is arranged during the year.  These interviews/conferences give you a chance to discuss your child’s progress with the class teacher.  However, if any particular problem arises and you wish to discuss this with your child’s teacher or the Principal you are most welcome to do so at any time.  It is necessary to first ring the office to make an appointment to avoid unnecessary interruption to the class and to avoid door-way parent/teacher discussions which are rarely constructive.


Individual written progress reports are prepared in June and December.


There is an open invitation to contact the Principal at any time on any matter of concern.  A grumble to a neighbour or friend rarely achieves anything.  Please contact the Principal to ensure the matter is dealt with properly. 


You are also welcome to contact any of the elected parent representatives on School Council if you prefer.
