From the Administration Menu, click on Pupil Manager > Edit favourite groups
School Favourite groups are defined at an administrative level. Once defined, School Favourite Groups automatically become available to subject users through their Favourites tab or as favourite groups of pupils to be selected when viewing or comparing data. School Favourite Groups can be used to identify groups of pupils that the school wishes to monitor. Groups can be defined using both shared and general fields as criteria.
To add a new favourite group click on Add a new favourite group. When you have defined your group click Save. A maximum of 100 School Favourite Groups may be defined and any favourites not used for over 365 days will automatically be deleted. Favourite groups that fail will also be automatically deleted. A favourite group may fail if a field name used in the group definition is subsequently edited or deleted.
Once a group has been defined several options become available. By hovering the mouse over the favourite name the group definition is displayed.
To edit a favourite group click Edit under the action column. It is not possible to edit the defined group however, the favourite name may be changed. Click Save to save any changes made.
To delete a favourite group click on Delete under the Action column. Alternatively, to delete multiple favourites check the boxes in the far left hand column and click on the delete button.
To produce a subject summary displaying a list of pupils belonging to a favourite group for each subject click on the favourite name. A modal window will open providing the option of downloading a report for each subject or a report for all subjects.
Note: If shared fields have been used in the group definition e.g. Shared: S3_Effort, then a different list will be displayed for each subject. If only general fields are used in the group definition e.g. Looked_After, then the list will be the same for each subject.
You can also download a report containing the relevant subjects each pupil belongs to for a particular form or tutor group. For example, having created a School Favourite Group to highlight all the pupils in year 6 with a RED traffic light you can now generate a report for the tutor group 6C containing a list of pupils along with a list of subjects for each pupil where the 'S6 Traffic Light' field is RED. This would enable the form tutor of 6C to instantly see which subjects each pupil in his tutor group is underachieving in.
