A guide to using Tapestry
At Warden House we use an online profile to build up evidence of children’s achievements in class using a system called “Tapestry”. This system is used with our youngest children in Year R & Year 1 to track and report on their progress. We would like to invite you to sign up to access Tapestry from home so that you can track your child’s progress during the school year and contribute to their learning journey.
By logging on with a secure username and password, you will be able to view your child’s observations, photographs and videos from their time in class. You can also sign up to receive an email telling you when a new observation or piece of work is available for you to view. This will enable you to follow your child’s progress closely and you can reflect upon achievements with your child. You can add comments so that, we as a staff find out about which activities your child really enjoys and about the learning they get up to at home.
In making assessments, staff will reference your child’s learning to the EYFS/KS1 profile so you will know which area of learning your child is achieving in and the age-band they were working in for that activity. Please note this is just one of the many forms of assessment we use, so whatever is on Tapestry is not the only information we use to assess your child’s development. All this information is stored on a highly secure server which is monitored closely.
