Tapestry

 

We are delighted to introduce to you our online ‘e-learning journeys.  Every child will have a personal online E-Learning Journal, documenting their experiences and development during their time in EYFS.

 

What is Tapestry?

Tapestry is a secure online system which holds observations and developmental records about your child in an e-Learning Journey. Tapestry provides parents/carers with the ability to view their child’s personal e-learning journal at any time. Parents/carers will also be able to contribute to their child’s e-learning journey.

 

How to access the E-Learning Journal?

The website is very easy to navigate. You are able to access it on a computer via the following website. 

Alternatively you can access Tapestry on a tablet via an iTunes app called ‘TapestryMobile’.

Once you have handed your email address into school you will be issued with a password to enable you to log in to your child’s personal e-learning journey. Parents who do not have access to email/internet will be able to log in at school or receive their child’s e-learning Journey in printed form.

Using your username and password you will be able log on to view photographs, videos and observations of your child. You will even receive an email telling you when a new observation is available for you to view. This will enable you to follow your child's individual progress closely and allow you to talk with your child about their achievements and experiences each day.

 

 

Here is our STEP by STEP guide:

To login to your child’s journal ……………

  • Go into the website: https://eylj.org/login/ or download the app
  • Put in your email and create a password / PIN when prompted.
  • Click on your child’s journal and look through the observations.
  • Add your own comments at the bottom of the observation.
  • Add your own observations of your child’s achievements outside of school.

If you have any questions or queries about Tapestry please feel free to speak to your child’s teacher.

Tapestry Privacy Policy

The Tapestry Online Learning Journal service is owned, managed and operated by The Foundation Stage Forum Ltd. (FSF), a UK based organisation entirely concerned with offering supporting services to professionals working with early years education. To read the FSF privacy policy please ask Beccy for a copy.

For Tapestry the FSF have drawn up a more specific policy since, by its nature, they have potential access to the data entered into Tapestry accounts. Basically you own all the data you enter, and the FSF won't look at it or make use of it unless you ask them to. More specifically, here are some points you might like to note:

  • When you open a Tapestry account all your information is stored in a dedicated database in servers physically resident in the United Kingdom.
  • When you take out an account with FSF, or when you download and install an app, information will be exchanged. FSF will not trade or otherwise pass on that information to any third party.
  • FSF services and apps carry no advertising or related tracking software, either for their own use or other commercial organisations.
  • The data you enter is stored by FSF, but owned by you. If you decide to terminate your Tapestry account they will ask you if you would like them to archive your information for a limited period. If you do not want to do this, they will delete it completely, which means that the data will disappear forever. They will also delete all media files associated with the account.
  • The system necessarily stores cookies on the computers of users and mobile devices. These are simply to allow navigation of the system and collect no personal data.
  • FSF will not visit your account unless you ask them to (eg to address any issues you are experiencing)
  • FSF will not access or use any contact information Poppies enter (for example, in setting up your parent accounts they will enter email addresses allowing you to be notified of additions to your child's journal). Email harvesting and exploitation will not happen!

Again - this data is not FSFs; they simply look after it for you. FSF commit to doing this and protecting it for your sole usage.

Tapestry Early Years has been created to help providers and families share information for the benefit of children.
