    Detentions adding limit

    Hello,

    Adding detentions into pupils records today and it seems we have reached the limit at around five? Can anyone help as the "new" button with the little blue sheet next to it is not currently avaliable & teachers cannot add any more detentions.

    Thanks Tom

    There's no limit that i'm aware of. I've got a student who received 6 in one year. It might be limited by the number of behaviour incidents you have as you need to link each detention to an incident.

    oh man, there is no limit - I had a student last year that was fully booked up with after school detentions for the whole of the last half-term.

    my only real thought is that it stems from the detentions not being created?

    I'm trying to teach our staff to create the BI and then link the detention to it after the fact - otherwise they end up giving the behavior point, and then giving another when they put the student in detention and choose the same category.

    I'm slowly cleaning that up though.

    really wish I could prevent staff from putting students in detention without going from the BI honestly.

    Hi Tom,

    Got to the bottom of this one, unfortunatley someone had only set-up detentions for 10 weeks from the start of term meaning they were not created for this week.


    I have changed this now so they run until the end of term.


    On the pupil view though I think once a student has got over five detentions you cannot add another one on indivudually, although you can add him to a detention session.


    Thanks for your help.

    no probs dude, always glad to be able to help.

    I never use the teacher/student view, as I find it an unnecessary screen between things - I'd much rather browse students and pull the one I want, at least save myself a click later when I want to go to their behavior or something else.
