Tapestry is used by Year R and Year 1
Tapestry is an easy-to-use and secure online learning journal helping staff and families celebrate their children’s learning and development. Tapestry builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education.
Using photos, videos, and diary entries, a teacher or early years educator, along with the child’s parents or carers, ‘weaves’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey.
All information held in the platform is stored securely and can be downloaded and shared as required including between educational settings to support an effective transition when starting school. Parents or carers are able to view their child’s progress, the activities provided for them, and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media.
The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential in Early Years and Year 1. The Tapestry online learning journal is also available as an easy-to-use, secure app, meaning capturing key learning moments, and videoing milestones are even easier.
