Marking the roll is a common but highly important part of school day-to-day business. Not only is student attendance a required legal record, but knowing exactly where your students are is vital for managing their safety and wellbeing.
Sentral’s Attendance suite provides a comprehensive toolset for managing student attendance, with roll marking options for both primary and secondary schools. It also comes with a range of alternatives for schools with complex attendance needs. Offering a spectrum of reports and statistics that allow you to track the attendance of both individuals and student cohorts over time, this module is highly configurable. Sentral Attendance can provide the functionality your school needs, without weighing down processes with things you don’t.
★ Complete Attendance Management
More than just roll marking, Sentral can also manage incursions, excursions, notifications, reporting, student kiosks and more. Mark rolls electronically, using a laptop, desktop, mobile device, or IWB (interactive whiteboard). Where paper rolls are preferred, these can easily be printed and include Sentral's built-in barcode tagging to integrate with digital attendance data if needed.
★ Period by Period (PxP)
Linked to your timetable, Attendance PxP can operate either as your primary attendance system or as a supplement to Sentral Attendance. Give *staff easy access* to functions they need on a by-class basis, such as quick wellbeing incidents, staff notifications, lesson evaluations, class assessments and course details. Gain a thorough picture of student attendance by tracking absences per lesson and recording uniform infractions. Utilise the Truancy Wizard to detect ongoing non-attendance issues.
★ Staff Absences
Track staff absences and leave including daily sign-on. Create and store details about casual/relief staff including days available, subjects taught, school based feedback. Attach medical certificates to staff records.
★ Kiosk, Biometric and Swipe Integration
