observing children; tapestry
We use Tapestry to capture the groups' learning each week and also each individual child in detail, once per half term. Parents can upload photos, videos and comments, which we really value to share with the child and their friends, but also to consider the child's holistic learning, inside and outside our Nursery School.
Our teaching teams also create learning videos, for families to enjoy together, ideas for learning at home and demonstrating how we teach specific skills and knowledge in the nursery phases.
When children join our setting, families are supported to access Tapestry.

The teaching team know their key children really well and use their knowledge of the child, and the captured observations to consider where the child is on their learning journey 3 times a year. We will discuss these with families, hearing your ideas and answering any questions you may have.
The leadership team talk in depth about the groups of children 3 times a year and fortnightly for formative feedback. We plan for investment and development to the teaching, learning provision, routines, visits and visitors based on an understanding of the key groups or small groups.
