This guide will show you how you can set up the Behaviour Configurations, to include configuring how the screen looks when staff enter a behaviour event against a student, general configuration and detention schedule.
Access: the minimum permissions required for Behaviour Configuration is found in the Behaviour Module from Config>Set Up >Roles and Permissions
From the left Menu go to Config > Behaviour > Configurations.
This will open the Behaviour Configurations page with three sections, Behaviour Entry Form Configuration, Configurations and Detention Scheduling.
Behaviour Entry Form Configuration
Old Style Behaviour Entry Form
If using the old style Behaviour Entry Form leave the option unticked.
The Behaviour Entry Form when opened in the MIS will remain unchanged.
New Style Behaviour Entry Form
If changing to the new style Behaviour Entry Form tick the box, this will allow you to Configure the way the Behaviour Entry Form will be displayed to Staff when adding a behaviour event against a student.
The names of the Event Types can be changed from Positive, Neutral and Negative by clicking on each and entering the new names.
The blue options can be hidden by clicking on the Eye icon and will display grey to show they are Hidden.
The new Behaviour Entry Form has two tabs, the blue options can be moved left and right so you can decide what will be displayed in each tab.
The Behaviour Entry Form when opened will be displayed with the changes you have made.
Select your Configuration Settings from the options, hover on the i to see more information for each configuration.
- Do not process events until Review Completed for Review Required events – if the Event has been marked as requiring a Review, ticking this box will not show the Event within the system until the Review has been marked as complete Note: This can be used for example for a serious Behaviour Event that Senior Staff may like to review before it appears on the Students Record.
- Define Separate Detention Schedule for each Year Group – if selected each Detention Type can also be scheduled by individual Year Groups with different members of Staff associated with each
- Enable Rescheduling for Authorised Absences – if selected a Student with an Authorised Absence Code will automatically be rescheduled to the next Detention slot
- Enable Event Entry for past dates in Behaviour Entry Page – selecting this option it will allow Teachers to enter retrospective Behaviour Events from the Register or Lesson Dashboard. If this is not selected the Behaviour Event will not allow Events to be backdated (this does not affect backdating of Events in other Behaviour Entry areas like the Student Details page or Behaviour Event Records page
- Recalculate points on Event Deletion
- When this configuration is ticked and an event is deleted, any active action that is linked to the event will be recalculated. For example if you had one event that updated four actions on your MIS, once that event is deleted, the four actions that were linked to that event and display how many points the action should be on..
- If the configuration is unticked, when a behaviour event is deleted, any actions that were either triggered or had points fired into them by the deleted event will be undone as if that event had never been entered, undoing anything that the event had done to the actions that are linked to that event. If we use the same example as the ticked version, if one event that is linked to four actions is deleted, any linked action to that event would just have the points taken off and revert back to how the actions were before the event was added.
- Detentions are scheduled to occur in – Teaching Sessions – Non-teaching Sessions – this determines which Periods the Detentions appear in, both can be selected if needed
- Detentions will be scheduled at least xx days in advance – select how many days in advance Detentions are scheduled
- Type of Cut-off Time – Single Cut-off Time – Daily Cut-off Time – this sets the Cut-off Time for Scheduling
Add/Edit Attendance marks that can be used in Detention Review – In this section, you can select the Attendance Marks you wish to be used in the Detention Registers.
Only Attendance Marks that are enabled in here will be available to use on Detention Registers. You need to ensure that you enable Attendance Marks with the relevant meanings for your Detention setup, for example;
- You can only reschedule a Detention if the student receives an Authorised Absence Mark
- You can only escalate a Detention if the student receives an Unauthorised Absence Mark
If you unsure which Meaning an Attendance Mark has, you can check the Code Meanings on the Attendance Code page, to do this from the left Menu go to Config > Attendance > Attendance Codes and check them.
Once all Behaviour Configurations have been set, click on the Save button.
