What is Detentions?

Detentions is an intuitive behaviour management tool for teachers. It helps to reduce workload associated with disciplinary actions and works to make them part of a more positive behavioural approach. Whilst powerful alone, Detentions integrates with Satchel One’s Behaviour Pro module for a holistic approach to behaviour management.

Help students’ return to school

Facilitate students’ return to school with a well-thought out behaviour policy that supports students and parents. Given the time away from the classroom students will inevitably face some struggles as they transition back into school life but with a paperless detention system, schools can ensure school policy is being enforced safely and that parents remain informed.

  • Use alongside Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams for a fully rounded learning experience
  • Issue detentions online in line with school behaviour policy
  • Paperless detentions mean no lost slips and no close contact with pupils
  • When used with Behaviour Pro, schools can issue detentions off the back of escalated incidents
  • Keep parents engaged by notifying them when detentions are set

Minimise disruption

Set detentions quickly and easily by adding a reason, detention type and a room for it to take place in. Once you’ve issued a detention, Satchel One sends a notification to the student and parent account to notify them so you can continue teaching with minimal disruption.

  • Set Detentions quickly and easily with an intuitive interface
  • Detentions aids compliance with Ofsted guidance on Behaviour and Attitudes
  • Notify parents via the parent app when Detentions have been issued
  • Reduce teacher workload surrounding behaviour incidents with streamlined detention setting

Improve your behaviour policy

Set detentions in line with your school’s behaviour policy by creating your own standardised detention types and reasons. View an overall picture of your school’s detentions and ensure that students are attending via the Detention Report.

  • View data about detentions via automated reports
  • Align detentions with your behaviour policy by creating custom inputs for teachers
  • See which students are getting more detentions and what the most common reasons are
  • Track attendance for detentions to ensure pupils are turning up to detentions
  • Writeback all information relating to detentions back to SIMS for a clear behaviour record

Elevating serious incidents

Pair with the Behaviour Pro app to access Referred Incidents, a feature that allows teachers to refer serious incidents to the relevant member of staff for a more efficient way of dealing with disruptions. Set Detentions off the back of Referred Incidents to effectively deal with disruptive behaviour.

  • Set Detentions based on Referred Incidents
  • Elevate serious incidents to head of years and SLT members
  • Stay up-to-date with the incident’s progress
  • Quickly and easily file the behaviour report with custom standardised reasons
