Tapestry- an online learning journal for nursery and reception children.
Dear parents/carers,

At Cliff Lane Primary school we recognise how important it is to work in partnership with you, their parents, to support your child’s development. One of the ways to successfully achieve this is through the use of Tapestry, a secure online learning journal. Please click on the link for additional information about Tapestry: https://tapestry.info/
Ordinarily we would request that you complete this form later on in the transition process. However, given the current 'lockdown' situation, we feel it necessary to sign you and your child up to Tapestry ahead of the the summer holidays.
Over the next few weeks, you will hear from us regularly; Tapestry will be a significant method of communication and a platform upon which we will introduce your family to your child's new school, their teachers and to the other staff who will play an important role in their transition and future learning.
We want to reassure you that we will do everything we can to create the best possible transition for your child during a time where everything else feels very uncertain.

Tapestry Consent
Please read the following statement:

All nursery and reception children attending Cliff Lane Primary School have an online Learning Journal whereby teachers and parents can record videos, take photos and create written observations in order to create a record of each child's experiences through their own unique learning journey.
The Tapestry Online Learning Journal is a system which is hosted in the UK on secure servers. These servers conform to high environmental standards and are proactively managed 24 hours a day. Each account has its own database and the code itself is developed using hack-resistant techniques. Filenames are encoded for uploaded videos and images, making it a safe and secure online Learning Journal tool. Both the Tapestry app and website will allow you to have secure access to your child's Learning Journal and we actively encourage you to add to it by uploading photos and observations or by commenting on the observations created by the early years staff.
Once you have provided the school with your email address we will be able to set you up with an account. In order for your child's Learning Journal to be created, please provide permission by completing the form below.
Please note that each parent only has access to their own child's Learning Journal. If you have more than one child joining the setting (e.g twins or a child in nursery and in reception), a separate form will need to be completed for each child.
