All children attending our Pre-School have a personal on-line Learning Journey which records photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. This builds up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us.
We use a piece of secure, educational software called Tapestry which is hosted on servers that conform to very high environmental standards, are proactively managed 24 hours a day, and it has been developed using hack resistant techniques.
Each observation we make will be recorded directly onto a mobile app and linked to your child's personal profile. Tapestry allows you to view your child's observations almost as they happen! We encourage parents to add your own comments or photographs and share your wow moments from home. You will also be able to share activities with your child's keyperson that they particularly enjoyed. These records will also help us make assessments of your children to ensure their learning and development is being met correctly.
Then finally, when your child is ready to take the next step on their journey, we will provide a CD or hard copy of their time at the Pre-School. Norton Primary School also use Tapestry in their reception class so you can continue to enjoy their journey if they attend.
