Nursery & Reception - Tapestry

31 October 2018 (by admin)

As many of you may know we have just starting using a new online learning journey system called Tapestry.

This will replace 2Simple and the messaging element of Dojo and make it easier than ever for you to see what your child is achieving at nursery/school and support their learning and next steps at home. Thank to those of you who have already submitted email address through via the induction pack or Class Dojo registration. If you have not supplied us with your email address or it has changed please ensure that you complete the letter sent home and return to school.

Tapestry is a GDPR compliant company using secure servers in the UK to store data, further information regarding the security of tapestry is available online and by request.

We will use Tapestry to record observations, comments and photos to show progress across the Early Years Foundation  Stage (From age 2 till the end of Reception). Tapestry will compliment other forms of observing and assessing already in place, you will be able to access your child’s Learning Journey whenever you wish from a computer via  https://tapestryjournal.com  or by using the free ‘Tapestry’ App on mobile devices. Log in details will be provided to you on receipt of the signed user agreement. Once you have these details you can log in and see your child’s observations, change your password and also add other family members.

Many of the most meaningful photographs taken show children interacting in group play or activities with peers, we therefore ask that these photos are for your own viewing and NOT to be shared publically or uploaded onto any social media websites, this is in line with our ‘Social Networking’ and ‘Mobile phone/camera’ policies, failing to up hold this request will result in suspending your child’s online Learning Journey.

We hope that this system will prove to be a positive experience in sharing information. As well as viewing our contributions, you will also be able to add comments, photos and videos of your child at home to add to their shared learning journey. 

When you have returned the user agreement you will be issued with a user guide and log in details.

 

Thanks you for your Support
