There are a few easy ways to record a Pastoral note and edit that note within Boardingware's Web App.

From the Home Board:

 Make your student selection then click on 'Pastoral' at the top of the screen.

 Or, when hovering over the students name, you will see a drop down menu with the 'Pastoral' option.


Choose what type of event it was and fill in the incident details, actions taken, any additional notes, and toggle on if you wish this information to be added to the watchlist and/ or marked as sensitive. 

Note: If a note is marked as sensitive, anything written in the 'note' field will be hidden from staff members without access to 'Sensitive Pastoral'.

Press the "Save" button to save this record directly to the student profile.


If you have added this item to the 'Watchlist', you can then review the pastoral record by simply hovering over the icon on each students Home Board Tile, as shown below:


You can use the Watchlist filter on the right side of the Home Board to only view students on the Watchlist, and click into each Watchlist type to further filter:

To edit a Pastoral note that is on the Watchlist, hover your mouse over the icon on the student's profile card and click on the note.


Select the three dots at the top right of the popup and select 'Edit'.

Note: If you do not see the edit option here, you have not been given access to edit this area by your school's Administrator.



Pastoral notes can also be added right from within the Student profile, and will be saved there, in the records section:

To edit a Pastoral Note, navigate into the student profile and then to the 'Records' section. Use the filter to show only Pastoral notes, and click on the note. Then use the three dots on the right side of the popup to edit.
