How to set up detention types

Detention types can be set up to allow your staff to choose from a preset list of detentions with default times and locations applied.

To setup detention types for your school, begin by selecting ‘School Settings’ from the 3 lines menu. From the School Settings page, click on the ‘Detentions’ tab on the left-side of the screen to and select "Detention types".

To begin, click on the "add a detention type" button in the top right hand corner of the page.

You will be given the option to name your detention type. Once you have done so, your detention type will appear in the list of available detention types. 


Click the edit / pencil icon alongside to open the detention type configuration and enter the relevant room and time.

Select ‘OK’ to confirm. Your new detention type will now be selectable by staff when awarding a new detention.
