About us:

Based at Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School in Horsham, Compass@QEII provides schools and other settings in the area with a first point of contact for advice and support when working with 0-25 year olds with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Developed in conjunction with West Sussex County Council in 2013, although independent from the Local Authority, Compass@QEII is a Special Educational Need (SEND) Hub Network. These support and provide expertise for schools and settings to enable children and young people 0 – 25 years to have successful mainstream education provision. From January 2014, a Steering Group consisting of local schools and other partners in the field of SEND, as well as representatives from Parents’ Forum meet to ensure what is being offered fits with the needs of the area. Currently, Compass@QEII is funded by West Sussex County Council but this is a temporary measure to support the development phase. The Steering Group is working on devising a sustainable business model to secure the future of Compass.

Compass@QEII provides a clear access point for staff, parents/carers and young people and supports partnership working to the meet the needs of those aged 0-25 through offering support, advice, training and signposting to other services in the area. Through working with a range of partners, Compass@QEII provides the infrastructure to deliver ‘The Local Offer’.
