The Summary tab is used to record basic details of information regarding a child. All of the information that is entered on this tab will be visible to other users regardless of their clearance level, so you should not enter any sensitive information here. Sensitive information can be recorded on the "detail" tab, which is explained further down this page.
When recording information about a pupil, you will always need to specify a clearance level and a summary. The clearance level determines which users will be able to see the details that you enter. So if you are entering a highly sensitive piece of information that few members of staff should be aware of, you should use a high clearance level. Information that can be made available to many members of staff can be recorded using a lower clearance level.
The summary is the title of the information that is recorded, which will be visible to staff members regardless of the clearance level. Therefore the summary should explain what has happened but without revealing any details e.g. "Bruising" rather than "Fight with brother". Is this a good example? ask Steve
|Concerns are worrying issues that you feel ought to be recorded.
A concern does not have to be something serious; give example of severity 1 concern ask Steve. This is what the severity field is for; the more serious your concern is, the higher severity rating you should give to it. This will determine which member of staff reviews the information you have entered. You should never be worried about recording low severity concerns.
At the bottom of the page, you will see the Framework Assessment triangle - this is a diagram used to measure and assess the progress and development of a child. What on earth is this thing ask Steve
The detail section is used to record additional information when you are recording information about a child. Other users will only be able to see these comments if their clearance level is equal to, or higher than, the clearance level that you give to the incident.
