Every child in the Early Years will have the own individual learning journey. At Knowle we use an ‘online learning journal’. This will enable staff to take photographs, videos and make written observations of the activities your child completes at school. You will then have access to this information (using your email address and a secure password to log in) so you can celebrate your child’s learning at home too. Parents/carers can also add their own photos and comments to the journal from home.
The version we are using is called ‘Tapestry’ and is hosted in the UK on dedicated, secure servers. These servers conform to very high safety standards and are proactively managed by a central security team. The safeguarding of our children is very important to us. Everything that is added to Tapestry will be added to our school account and can only be viewed by the school staff that use the system, and yourself, using your own log in details.
Our early years team will have access to your child's learning journey to upload and share your child's learning. It is only you who will have access to your child’s journal, and this cannot be seen by other parents. However, children will sometimes be photographed with others as they work together. For this reason, we seek permission for your child to appear in photographs with other children’s learning Journals before they start with us.
