|Allow user to edit and deal with pupil detentions / removals|
Once a detention / removal has been given to a pupil, it must be scheduled before a detention register is created. Scheduling a detention / removal means choosing on which time and date it will take place. Scheduling can be done automatically or manually. This page in PARS is used to manually schedule.
The schedule detentions / removals page
This page shows you all of the available detention / removal slots for the week. For each slot you will be able to see how many pupils are currently attending, and how many pupils have outstanding detentions / removals that need to be scheduled. If the timeslot has a limit on the number of pupils that may attend, then you will also be able to see this.
If you click the "Toggle unscheduled slots" button then you will be able to view unscheduled slots. This means that you can create a new slot for this type of detention / removal. This would normally be done for low-level detentions such as a 'Teacher detention' which could take place at any time, rather than an 'SLT detention' or 'Isolation' which might only take place on Friday nights.
Whether or not you can use unscheduled slots depends on your detention / removal configuration.
You'll notice that this page is colour-coded: blue is for slots that have been scheduled, green is for unscheduled slots and orange shows the slot you have selected by clicking on it.
How to schedule detentions / removals
When you have selected a slot, a section will be visible on the right side of the screen showing a list of pupils' names. This list is used to manage the detentions. You will be able to see the ground and outcome leading to the detention, as well as any comments that have been added. There will also be a message if the pupil is scheduled to attend an extra curricular class at the same time. There will be an icon of a teacher next to the pupil's name if the detention is personal.
The list is divided into two sections, "Resolved" and "Unresolved". Pupils who are in the resolved list are already scheduled to sit the detention / removal you have selected. Pupils who are in the unresolved list have an unscheduled detention / removal and are waiting to be given a date to receive their punishment.
If a pupil has a cross next to their name, it means they have an unscheduled detention / removal and could be scheduled to sit the slot you have selected. Click the red cross to schedule the pupil - the cross will then turn into a tick.
Likewise is you want to remove a pupil from a detention / removal that they have been scheduled for, click the tick next to their name. Their detention / removal will then be unscheduled and the tick will turn into a cross.
You can click the tick boxes at the top of the resolved or unresolved lists to schedule or unschedule all pupils from the slot.
Pupils who have a 'padlock' or 'no entry' icon cannot be edited.
What do the icons mean?
Printing detention slips
If you have come to the schedule detentions screen immediately after giving detentions to pupils, you will be prompted to print slips for the detention (depending on the configuration of the time type). A window will open allowing you to choose fromt he different types of detention letters that you have in your system.
You can import detention letters via the slip designer page.
