At Oyster Park Primary Academy, we use ‘Tapestry’ a secure online Learning Journal to record photos and observations of what the children do in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, building up a record of your child’s experience during their time with us. This online platform allows us to work in partnership with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning both in and outside of the classroom.

When a member of staff has logged an observation with a photo or short video it is sent to their online learning journey. Parents will receive email notification to inform them that content has been uploaded for them to view. We encourage parents to contribute to their child’s learning journey by uploading photos and videos from home; this might be moments when you see your child making progress with counting or phonics, it might be them retelling a story or a record of a day trip you have taken.

The learning journal helps to create a whole picture of your child’s learning journey from home and school.
