On the next screen, record the details of the incident. You can add extra information under the 'Incident Details' tab if you wish.

Step 3

You can assign the behaviour to another teacher or year head under the 'Action Taken Details' tab which will trigger a notification to that person's dashboard. There is a further option to make the incident details confidential so only you and the assignee will be able to view the details.

Step 4

If more than one student was involved in the same behaviour, select the 'Actors' tab and select the student's names so that the behaviour is duplicated on to their profiles, saving you doing the task multiple times.

Any form of discipline that is carried out such as verbal, Assigning extra work or a note to parents etc. is recorded in the "Discipline" tab. If multiple disciplines apply, one can view all the disciplines a student received for this one incident in the "Current Disciplines" tab.
