In the Early Years Foundation Stage, assessment takes place in a variety of ways, but is mainly through ongoing observations; some are collected on a programme called Tapestry.
Tapestry builds a very special record of a child’s experiences and journey throughout their early years, using an online learning journal designed and developed specifically for EYFS. Using photos and diary entries. Our EYFS teachers and you (the parents), ‘weave’ the story of your child and how they progress together. The Tapestry platform works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey throughout Nursery and Reception. All information held in the platform is kept securely. Each parent has a unique login which cannot be accessed by anyone else. Parents are encouraged to be part of this process and are asked to send photographs and descriptions of their child’s experiences into school via Tapestry.
