If you can't select a detention session to add students to, this means there aren't any upcoming detention sessions scheduled.
Detention sessions need to be scheduled each year - you can do this from Students > Behaviour > Setup > Detentions tab.
Click +Add to add your detention types for this year e.g. after school.
Then click into a detention type, go to the Timetable tab and click +Add to schedule when the detention will run.
Still can’t issue ad-hoc detentions? Check and amend whether your school allows you to issue detentions without logging an incident from the same Detentions tab.
You can see more information about this process here: Setting up detentions
- School: Behaviour: Behaviour Policy - Choose how detentions can be assigned
- Student Profile: Detention: Administer all students - Manage all detentions from the School > Behaviour > Detentions page.
- School:Behaviour: Log behaviour incident - Log an incident, which may lead to a detention being assigned
If you don't have the right permission, ask your admin team to assign them to you.
