The behaviour Heat Map is used to visually show the locations for behaviour within the school. Any type of behaviour can be analysed in this way. You will need to upload a copy of your school's floor plan and mark the locations of the school rooms on the plan before a heat map can be generated.

This page is accessed via:
PARS main menu > Behaviour > Heat Map

The Heat Map page

The heat map page will show an image of the school's floor plan if one has been uploaded, as well a list of behaviour types at the bottom of the page. There are also a number of buttons on the top toolbar.

Adding a new floor plan

Click the Add button from the top toolbar and choose a file from your computer. The file will need to be an image, not a Microsoft Word document or similar. Once you have chosen the file, it will appear on the heat map page. You can upload multiple floor plans (e.g. if your school has multiple storeys) and switch between them using the Switch floor plan button.

Next you will need to place the school rooms on the floor plan. To do this, click the Edit button. A list of rooms will appear at the bottom of the page. Click on a room and it will appear on the heat map. Click and drag the room so that it is in the correct position on your floor map. Repeat this for all of the rooms and then click Save; your heat map will then be ready to use.
