Sleuth for Form Tutors

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.

Some MySearch/MyReport suggestions that would be useful for a Form Tutor appear below. A MySearch and MyReport can be run from your Sleuth Home Page in a single step (e.g. a click of the mouse).

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 display 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).

Clear Information for Parents
"When each Tutor logs in they see the list of incidents specific to their tutor group. Tutors are encouraged to review this list everyday. When a student accumulates more than 4 incidents over a given time a meeting is set up to discuss their behaviour. Tutors are able to give parents a clear academic and pastoral overview and set appropriate and specific targets"

Competing to Improve
"Using the points reports has enabled us to introduce an element of competition across Year Groups as the number of positive points accumulated in Sleuth are compared across each tutor group year by year"
Deputy Headteacher - Lincs Secondary
Rewarding Tutor Groups
"The Sleuth reports are a great way to demonstrate how seriously we take our reward system. We also display the reports during Open Evenings and Parents Evenings. The Tutor Group in each year who have the greatest number of positives in Sleuth by the end of each term are able to have a day out of uniform"
