Well, sometimes compasses glitch up and don't work.
So try making another one and it should work.

Compasses point to your original spawn point, not your new one. This makes them useless unless you build something near the original spawn point (or if you want a map).

The compass only points to your original spawn point and will not point to a new one even if you sleep in a bed, so I recommend just building your base on your original spawn point for the compass to work

I think sleeping on a bed resets the original spawn point, and when you use the compass, it would point to the last sleep point or position. Tried it out on Minecraft PE 0.10.0. It works with PC, Xbox and other version as well.

It is probably because you were too close too your bed? Sometimes it won't work because your bed is not your exact spawn point.
