Behaviour points can be awarded for positive or negative behaviour on Arbor. There are a few different places you can record points from.
To add behaviour points, you will need either:
- Student: Behaviour: Log Point Award
- Student: Behaviour: View All/My Students and Student: Behaviour: Administer All/My Students
All business roles will have the Student: Behaviour: Log Point Award permission by default, but if your school manages your permissions you may need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.
Recording behaviour points
Select your point award scale to record points for from your Quick Actions.
You may already be viewing a lesson through the lesson dashboard of your class (the page you use to take the register and see class and student details).
On the lesson dashboard, there are two ways you can record points – either click the orange Behaviour button to get a drop-down menu, or tick the names of the students involved and click the Bulk action button in the Students table.
Go to the Behaviour section from the left-hand menu on the student's profile.
Click the Behaviour Points tab then click +Add.
You can jump to the behaviour section of Arbor through your Shortcuts on My Homepage, or by going to Students > Behaviour > Point Awards. Click the green Award/deduct points button.
When using this option, make sure you select which scale to add points for.
Update the slide over with the details, then click Award/Deduct points. When logging points you need to include:
- Who you are awarding the point to - this can be an individual student or a group
- The reason
- The points being awarded or taken away
Additional notes can be added including the time, location, staff who gave the points, as well as linking it to the lesson students were in at the time.
You can also upload a file, e.g. evidence such as a photo or copy of a piece of work too.
Top Tip: The maximum number of characters allowed in the Narrative field is 255 characters, to prevent further text being cut off in reports etc.

Can we automatically add points?
You can't automatically log points, such as for students with a certain high attendance percentage.
However, you can have certain behaviour incidents (positive or negative) also award points: Setting up Behaviour workflows
