What is Detentions?

Detentions is an online behaviour management tool for schools. Teachers can use the app to issue detentions to students online to address any behaviour issues that occur in the classroom. Parents and students are instantly notified when a detention has been issued and teachers and SLT can keep track of detentions across the school thanks to custom reports and attendance tracking within the Detentions app.

Minimise classroom disruptions

Ongoing disruptions within the classroom can negatively impact students’ learning and teachers’ wellbeing which is why it’s important to address poor behaviour as it happens. By issuing detentions quickly, students are aware of their misdemeanours and the time in detention can be used to help address behavioural issues.

  • Set detentions online quickly
  • Issue detentions in line with behaviour policy
  • Include the reason and duration of detention
  • Notify students and parents of detentions instantly

Teach students accountability

In order for student discipline to be effective, they need to learn from their mistakes with appropriate teacher support. Detentions supports students in taking responsibility for their actions, providing them with the information they need to attend detentions on time so they can use the time effectively.

  • Students can see upcoming detentions from their Timetable
  • Paperless detentions mean no more lost detention slips
  • Parents are instantly notified when a detention is issued
  • Students are told the date, time, room, duration and reason for the detention

Streamline behaviour management

The admin surrounding detentions and behaviour management can be time-consuming and tedious. It’s for this reason we’ve automated the detention setting process and surrounding reports so staff can set detentions in seconds and SLT can gather all necessary data to report on behaviour in a few simple steps.

  • Record student detention attendance on the platform
  • Receive automated, scheduled reports on detentions to your inbox
  • Writeback all detention data to SIMS
  • Set up detentions to replicate your school’s escalation policy

Provide praise alongside detentions

Detentions is available as an independent app where all data can be written back to SIMS. It is also available as part of our wider behaviour management app collection: Behaviour Management Suite. Here you can praise students, issue detentions online and automate even more of the admin associated with behaviour management.

  • Reinforce positive student behaviour with Behaviour
  • Follow school escalation policy with Referred Incidents
  • Reprimand negative actions with online Detentions
  • Automate disciplinary outcomes for students with Sanctions
