We have chosen to use an online system of recording your child’s learning in Reception.
Tapestry is a website which can be accessed with a computer, laptop and Apple or Android device such as a tablet or smart phone. We have chosen this company because they are a secure and also exciting way of keeping track of your child’s development during their time with us.
Instead of using a paper way of recording, we are able to instantly upload photos, videos and observations of your children. You then receive an email alert telling you that something new has been added to your child’s Learning Journal and you can log on and view what your child has been up to. A great advantage of this system is that you can instantly add your own comments to entries, and can share your child’s online journey to members of the family.
The safeguarding of our children is very important to us. Everything that is added to Tapestry will be added to our school account and can only be viewed by yourself and a limited number of school staff that use this system. Via a secured login, you will only have access to your child’s own book which cannot be seen by other parents. All our parents are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement and it is crucial that you do not share photos or videos from your child’s book on social media or through other online platforms. Any incidents where this confidentiality is broken will be dealt with very seriously and will result in your access to the system being withdrawn.
We would also like to signpost you to Tapestry’s website where you will find lots of information and videos:
