Tapestry is an on-line system which allows teachers to create an individual Learning Journey for every child in Year R. They can add comments, notes, photographs and videos of individual children and then link these to the Early Years Curriculum and the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
Teachers are constantly observing and assessing the children and take photographs and videos as evidence of the children’s experiences and achievements. These observations are linked to objectives from the Early Years Curriculum so that teachers can assess and monitor children’s progress and identify any areas for development.
We would love you to comment on your children’s Learning Journey and are confident that you will really enjoy having regular updates on your child’s experiences in school. It would be fantastic if you could add your own observations of your child when you notice them doing wonderful things at home.
We would ask however that you do use Tapestry responsibly.
Please do not share information from Tapestry electronically or publish it in any way.This means that photographs or videos from Tapestry cannot be posted on a social networking site or displayed in a public place.
Please do not use the comment section to have a dialogue with your child’s teacher. Teachers will not be able to respond to comments or enter into a conversation with individuals. Please make an appointment to talk to the teacher face to face.
Anybody found to be misusing Tapestry or adding inappropriate comments will have their parent account withdrawn.
In order for you to access your child’s Learning Journey please provide your e-mail address which we will use to set up an account enabling you to access your child’s learning journey via the secure Tapestry website for your child’s class. (Please note each parent only has access to their own child’s Learning Journey)
