Compass is the online communication portal used by BNPS to broadcast information, collect absence and permission information from parents and guardians, and to distribute your child/rens assessment results and reports. During Remote Learning some additional information regarding lesson plans and learning tasks will also be sent to families using Compass.

Each week the school will publish a form to register for Onsite Supervision. This must be completed as soon as possible each week.
All requests for supervision must be completed and returned to the school by MIDDAY each WEDNESDAY for sessions commencing the following week.
This must be completed on a weekly basis.
Students will not be permitted to attend the school in person unless this form has been submitted.
On-site attendance for registered students starts at 9:00am each school day and concludes at 3:30pm unless otherwise advised.
Remote Learning is learning that occurs beyond the classroom setting. The Department of Education has published detailed information on Learning from Home and related subjects on their COVID-19 advice for parents, carers and guardians page.
During COVID-19 children will work from home. The school will create and communicate schedules that shows what is expected of students in relation to the completion of tasks.
This communication will be through Compass, OneNote or Teams, depending on the year level of your child/ren.

Should we return to onsite learning, I am not comfortable with my child/ren attending. What can I do about this?
All schools in Victoria are having to adapt to a changing environment and situation caused by the pandemic. Certain families and children may be considered high-risk due to concerns regarding existing medical conditions or other factors.
BNPS will consider these on a case-by-case basis, and will discuss learning options for you based on your family’s situation.
If you have concerns about your child/ren returning to on-site learning, you may:
- Telephone the school on 03-9589-5449 and speak with the front office regarding your concerns.
