The attendance software can be accessed from the portal apps or directly at https://solent.seatsportal.co.uk/. If you are a new user and cannot access the application, please fill out this new user form.
Attendance is mandatory and students are expected to log this by swiping into all timetabled events. Students who don’t swipe into events will receive automatic reminders and warnings. If their attendance continues to be poor, it will result in a participation interview with the school’s Student Achievement Officer.
To ensure that students do not receive unwarranted interventions, staff should keep their timetabled events up to date and remind students to swipe at all events. This is particularly important at the start of each semester.

If an event is moved to an alternative room, any swipes at the new location will not be matched against the event and the student will be marked as absent. Any student who swiped at the originally timetabled room will still be marked as attended.
To ensure attendance records are correct, you will need to manually mark students using the attendance app and inform the timetabling and rooming team, based in in RM201, by emailing TAR@solent.ac.uk. They will be happy to help with the change after the session has finished.
You will need to manually mark the student’s attendance using the attendance app.
Accurate attendance information is very important: it is needed to support students effectively and ensure they do not receive unwarranted interventions. Additionally, students may need to provide their attendance record to potential employers. School directors will receive reports of staff who repeatedly fail to manually mark attendance.
Manually marking attendance is quick and easy. Using the Attendance App, click on the scheduled event on the lectures tab. Select the students you want to amend and mark their attendance. Changes to attendance should ideally be done during the event, or as soon as possible after. Attendance warning notices are issued early on Monday mornings, so manual marking should be completed before then. For more detailed instructions refer to the amending attendance guide.
If the room has an attendance reader, the event is likely to be monitored. The overwhelming majority of timetabled teaching spaces have readers.
It takes up to 2 minutes for a student’s swipe to be processed and appear in the attendance app.
To ensure the best possible data accuracy, timetabled events are not loaded into the attendance app until the night before the event. That means you will only see events that have been scheduled up to today.
Attendance is marked depending on when the swipe is made relative to the scheduled timetable start:
Attended - 15 mins before to 15 mins after Late - 15 mins to 30 mins after Absent - 30 mins after
