Tapestry – what is it?
We currently use an online system to record your child’s learning in the Foundation Classes.
Tapestry is a website which can be accessed on a computer or laptop, and also on any Apple or Android device such as a tablet or smart phone. This company have a secure and exciting way of keeping track of your child’s development and their time with us.
We are able to instantly upload photos, videos and observations of your children. You are then emailed to alert you that something new has been added to your child’s Learning Journal and can log on and view what your child has been up to. A massive advantage of this system is that you can instantly add your own comments to entries and can show your child’s online book 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 school staff that use the system and also yourself using your own log on.
You will only have access to your child’s own book and this cannot be seen by other parents. Also, it is crucial that you do not share photos or videos from your child’s journal 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this confidentiality is broken will be dealt with very seriously and will result in your access to the system being withdrawn.
