From this term we have chosen to use an online system of recording your child’s learning in Nursery School. 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 smartphone.  We have chosen this company because they are a secure and also exciting way of keeping track of your child’s development and their time with us.

 Instead of using the old paper book style way of recording, we will be 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 journal 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this confidentiality is broken will be dealt with very seriously and will result in your access to the system being withdrawn.

 We are very excited about introducing this system to our nursery school and would like you to find out more about it too.   I would also like to signpost you to Tapestry’s website where you will find lots of information and videos:  http://eyfs.info/tapestry-info/introduction
