Communicating Your Child’s Learning Journey

We will be recording your child’s first year in school using the Tapestry online Learning Journey. Tapestry is a GDPR compliant company using secure servers in the UK to store data – further information regarding the security of the system is available on the Tapestry website.  We will use Tapestry to record observations, comments and photos to show progress across the Early Years Foundation Stage and will compliment other forms of observing and assessing already in place.  You will be able to access your child’s Learning Journey from a computer at https://tapestryjournal.com or by using the Tapestry app on mobile devices.  You will only be able to access this by using your personal login, which will give you access to your child’s Learning Journey only.   Updates, reminders, information and support for parents will be regularly posted onto Tapestry to keep you informed about our experiences in school.
