Tapestry Frequently Asked Questions
Why use an online system?
Hand writing observations, printing out photos, cutting out and sticking all of these into a paper book is very time consuming. By taking photos and videos that can be instantly uploaded this increases the time that staff can spend with your children, supporting their learning.
We were also impressed with the way in which parents can instantly see what their child has been up to and can also share it with family members such as grandparents.
How do I get onto the system?
If you consent to us using Tapestry for your child, school will set up an account for you and provide you with log on details.
Tapestry can be accessed online at: http://eyfs.info/tapestry-info/introduction
It is available as a free app from the Apple Store and also on Android devices.
We will ask you to provide us with an email address so that we can set you up a personal account. This will be a secure way of logging in, and you will only be able to see your own child’s book.
I don’t have a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. How can I access Tapestry?
If you are unable to access the Internet on any device at home, then you will still be able to access your child’s book by arranging a mutually convenient time with your child’s teacher / key person to come into school. You will be provided with access to your child’s account and support if needed.
I am not very confident with computers or the Internet. How can I access Tapestry?
One of the reasons for us choosing Tapestry was ease of use. It is a very easy system to use, but should you have any problems, a member of the Early Years Team will be happy to support you.
Why do you need my email address?
Your email address is required in order to set you up with access to your child’s account. It is to ensure security on the site and also so that we can email you when a new entry has been added for your child.
