A pupil can be placed on detention when you are adding a behaviour incident. Click on the link for more information about adding behaviour and issuing detentions.

You can also place a pupil on detention via the main menu. Go to mark pupils for detentions for instructions on doing this.

You can edit and delete detentions via the edit scheduled detentions/removals feature in PARS, which can also be used to send emails, SMS messages or letters home to parents.

The schedule detentions / removals page allows you to alter the date on which the pupil is going to serve their detention or removal. Note that PARS will not allow a pupil to be in two detentions at once.

When pupils have been placed in detention or removal, PARS will create a register for them. You can take the register to record which pupils are absent and which are not, and reissue detentions if necessary. Follow the link for instructions.

When they have been configured, you can use rule based detentions to place pupils into detention in bulk. Pupils will be placed into detention if they have hit certain criteria, e.g. 3x late in a week or 10+ negative incidents in a month.

You can find information about detentions and removals, analyse their effectiveness and identify patters using detention reports or removal reports. Each of the links takes you to a page showing screenshots of all reports available.


Before you can use the Detention or Removal systems in PARS, you will need to create some slots e.g. "SLT" detention or "Isolation". This is done using the configure time types page in PARS.

When pupils are placed into detention or removal, PARS will create a register for them. PARS comes with four attendance marks that can be used in detention or removal registers, but you can create extras if required. To do this, go to the configure statuses page.

If you are going to send letters home to parents regarding detentions or removals, then you will need to import the letter designs into PARS. The letter designs must be written in html markup, so our programmers will produce these for you free of charge. You will first need to send us a mock-up showing how you would like the finished letter to look. We will then send a file back to you which you can import into PARS via the slip designer.

Rule based detentions can be used to automatically place pupils in detention for hitting certain criteria e.g. 3x late in a week. Follow the link for instructions on creating rule based detentions.
