Features of Tapestry
- Children’s achievement is most effective when home and school work together and share information in order that children achieve their potential
- Unlike a physical, hard copy book, it’s easy to share the online journal with groups of relatives, extended families, parents living apart and relatives living overseas
- You may see ‘likes’ from other members of staff –This means that other members of the team are proud of your child’s achievements –Remember all staff work with all children
- At the end of the school year, if you wish to print off a copy of the journal to keep, you will be notified via email when it is ready and you will be notified of the time frame to download and print before it expires
