Our main method of communication with you is Tapestry, our online learning journal. We will ask you to sign a permission form for our use of Tapestry during your initial visit. It is an extremely secure platform – you sign in with your email address and password, and only people you have chosen to give your password to are able to view your child’s observations.
There will be an observation of your child on Tapestry at least once a fortnight and, during their time in the Nursery class, a ‘Focus Child’ report will be put on Tapestry once a term, giving a detailed report of your child’s progress.
Please do remember to read and comment on these observations. You are our partners in your child’s education, and your input is extremely valuable to us. You are also able to post photos and observations to your child’s Tapestry account to share with us – we love to see pictures of things the children enjoy doing outside of Nursery, and often use them to inform our planning.
Looking at photos of themselves and their families having fun is also a lovely way to help children to settle if they are ever feeling anxious, so we make the children’s learning journals available to them at Nursery.
