Using Sleuth to track behaviour provides each and every member of staff with the information they need to fulfill the pastoral responsibilities of their role. The ability to record in detail allows you to analyse and report in detail which provides an opportunity to understand the underlying causes of behaviour and focus on finding solutions.
Whatever your role in school you can use Sleuth to search for and interrogate recorded data then use the results to develop strategies for intervention. Using Sleuth regularly throughout the school day lets you stay on top of behaviour and communicates progress and concerns to colleagues that will support them in their roles.
Sleuth for the Senior Management Team
School Leaders (including Governors) are responsible for the implementation of a school's behaviour policy. ’Established’ practice requires that policies have clear success criteria, are monitored for their impact on identified groups and evaluated and updated as appropriate. Sleuth plays a major part in this self-evaluation and policy review process. It will identify whether policy is adhered to consistently in day-to-day practice and shows progress against each of your criteria for success.
In order to demonstrate ’leading’ practice schools need to ensure that monitoring and evaluation processes clearly demonstrate that systems are in place to appropriately identify vulnerable groups and make effective provision to support their learning. Sleuth provides the means to identify students at-risk and includes sufficient detail to be able to develop appropriate intervention strategies and to subsequently monitor the impact of these strategies on a student's progress.
Some MyReport suggestions that would be useful for Senior Leaders appear below. A MyReport can be shared with colleagues and run from your Sleuth Home Page in a single step (e.g. a click of the mouse).
Example MyReports from Sleuth for Senior Leaders
MySearch - Using Sleuth you can search for just the behaviour data you are interested in by selecting any of the detailed incident search criteria (e.g. for a particular year group, student gender, behaviour type, date or period). When you run a search Sleuth displays just the list of incidents/students that meet your criteria so you can view/update each individually. A search that you may want to run frequently can be saved, this is called a MySearch. Once saved it can be run from your Sleuth Home Page in a single step (e.g. click of the mouse).
MyReport - A MyReport in Sleuth is a report where you define the search criteria, how to order/breakdown the results (e.g. by year group, subject, date) and also the style of presentation to use to display the results of the search, (e.g. text, bar chart, line graph).
