Attendance and Detentions
Our Attendance and Detention modules now work together to help save teachers time by preventing automatic upscaling when a pupil has an authorised absence. Please click here for a detailed guide on how to set this feature up.
New Attendance Permission
Our reworked Attendance Permission makes it easier for schools to manage and keep track of who is changing Attendance marks and allows access to Attendance analytics and information. This permission is enabled by default for all School Admin users. Attendance admin holders will be able to view Parent Contact Details from the Display All page. Contact us for more information on how to pull through Parent Contact details. All staff with accounts will be able to take Attendance in lesson without the permission. For a detailed guide on what the Attendance Permission allows please click here.

Marking Specific Periods in Bulk
You are now able to mark specific periods in bulk from our Attendance > Display All grid. This allows users to mark out specific periods for specific pupils in bulk in the event of an exam or sporting activity that does not take place all day. For a detailed guide on this feature please click here.
New filters on Display All
The ‘Show All Pupils’ filter now contains two new options: ‘Show all pupils absent today’ and ‘Show unmarked pupils’.
Copy attendance from selected period to AM / PM when setting attendance in Display All and Pupil reports. AM mark given here will also populate all day if set to in settings.
When taking attendance for a period which copies to either AM or PM registration, the mark will automatically be copied to the AM or PM mark. If the mark is given for an AM period it will populate all day if set up to do so in School Settings. For a detailed guide on this feature please click here.
