Manager of Compass: Anna Selwyn
Compass (Additionally Resourced Provision at PMS) provides an education for students
with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome of mainstream ability who require highly specialised
and individual arrangements in order to access a mainstream school. Students are taught
curriculum subjects in a mainstream environment but additionally they have access to a
specially designed low stimulus area set in a building separate from the main school.
Students are expected to comply with the whole school Behaviour for Learning Policy.
At Compass, students take part in additional activities designed to meet their individual,
complex need. Groups are run to foster social interaction skills, support life and
organisational skills and develop emotional literacy. Students are offered ‘sensory diet’
sessions in order to reduce their anxiety level. Programmes and timetables are studentcentred and highly differentiated.
Compass is a well resourced centre in a purpose-built building with access to cutting edge
ICT equipment and a range of ASD-specific resources including a small sensory room.
Students have access to an interactive whiteboard and a variety of software designed to
improve their social and communication skills.
For general enquiries please call the school between 8.30 am and 4pm, Mondays to Fridays

Compass has supported The Joely Bear Appeal. The Appeal supports young cancer patients and their families, funds specialist research into life-threatening illnesses, runs three blood donor sessions each year and promotes the importance of giving blood and registering on the Bone Marrow panel.
Under supervision of Ms Moses, Compass students designed 100 key rings to help encourage giving blood. The key rings will be available at the Appeal's 54th blood donor session to raise money for the charity.
We encourage everybody to also support this cause, and attend the blood donor session on Sunday 11th November 2012 at Borehamwood & Elstree Synagogue, Croxdale Road, Borehamwood, Herts, WD6 4QA (10:30-17:30)
