Adding students to a detention

Allocating unallocated students to a detention

If any students been given detention but not been allocated to a specific session, you have two options to fix this from the Unallocated detentions tab. Select the students, then choose to cancel the detentions, or assign them to an upcoming session. 



Adding students or staff to a detention

To add students or staff members to a particular Upcoming or Recent detention, click on the detention and click the orange buttons in the slide over.




If your school have set up their detentions policy to not allow ad-hoc detentions, you won't be able to add students without logging an incident.


Assigning students to a detention using an incident

If your school have set up their detentions policy to not allow ad-hoc detentions, you won't be able to add students without logging an incident. 



If your school have set up their incident workflows to automatically assign a detention, logging the incident will automatically add them to the upcoming detention.



If there are no sessions scheduled for the detention type you will be able to select the detention type and session to assign.



If your school have set up their incident workflows to allow staff to assign a detention when a particular level of behaviour is logged, you can select the detention session in the second step when logging the incident.



You can choose to leave these fields blank and not assign the student to a detention. If you want to add them to a detention later you can use the Take Action button on the incident overview.




The Detention session

Rescheduling detentions for absent students

You can see if a student has a planned absence overlapping a detention session. Go to the detention session dashboard and see the Attendance mark field. The marks are also colour coded, with green indicating present, orange indicating absent with a reason, and red indicating absent with no reason given.


You can see students’ AM and PM statutory roll call marks, so you can reschedule their detention if they’ve been absent during the day. 

You can choose to send one text per household or only to primary guardians!




Dig deeper into their full attendance for the day by clicking their name.

Attendance can be taken by clicking on Take attendance.



Once you have taken attendance, you add any absentees to the next detention session by clicking the green button.



Logging behaviour

Log a Behaviour Incident that may have occurred in the detention session by clicking on +Add next to Behaviour.


Attach a file in relation to the session, by dragging a file or clicking to upload a document/photo to support your notes.
