We use a key person approach. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom she is particularly responsible. Our team use an online tool, Tapestry, to record observations, comments and photos to show progress across the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Each week you will receive an email when a new observation or piece of work is available for you to view. This will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress and you can reflect upon their achievements with your child. You can add comments and photos too, so that we, as a team, find out about which activities your child really enjoyed and the learning they get up to at home. Prior to each meeting with your child’s key worker you will receive a written report on your child’s progress.

The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential. If your child is 2 years old we will also carry out a 2 year progress check as required by the EYFS.

You will receive a login and be able to access your child’s journal as you wish.
