The Early Years Foundation Stage Forum (FSF) is proud to announce that Tapestry (conceived, delivered, refined and watched over by the FSF) now includes progress monitoring and tracking throughout key stages 1 and 2.

Many of you have used Tapestry in the early years, and will be familiar with the much-loved partnership with parents that the service facilitates.

Until now, however, the EYFS curriculum finishing at end of Reception has meant that your use of Tapestry also came to an end at this time. This is no longer the case.

Tapestry now provides strong and growing assessment and tracking tools throughout key stage 1 and 2. Using the familiar national curricula means your teachers will be familiar with the subject areas and learning outcomes, so there is no need to go through the learning curve of a proprietary system.

Assess individuals, groups or whole classes, using either the traditional observation based method, accompanying assessments with photos or videos, or enter data for groups quickly and easily. Monitor for gaps in curriculum coverage and identify individual areas of concern via easy to navigate screens. We will be adding to the initial functions rapidly from September in accordance with customer feedback. We will be starting with the following:

With the introduction of tracking key stage 1 and 2 progress, the Tapestry team are looking forward to new adventures. Our philosophy has always been to respond to user feedback and suggestions, and this has regularly led the development of Tapestry features in unexpected directions.
Initially we will be providing the following features for key stage 1 and 2:

  • Track progress using current key stage 1 and 2 curricula.
  • Use existing subject areas and learning outcomes.
  • Easily record and view a child's attainment.
  • Assess individuals, groups or whole classes.
  • Build partnerships through optional parental access.
  • Identify children who are at, above or below expected attainment.
  • Chart areas of the curriculum still to be covered.
  • Provide accessible data for teachers, senior leadership and governors.
All these in addition to the current well-established learning journal features of Tapestry. At your discretion parents can keep their treasured photos and videos of their children all the way through primary school and continue building their child’s Tapestry.

There is no extra charge for key stage 1 and 2 – just our usual charging based on child numbers. Visit https://tapestry.info/primary for more information and to take out a free trial.
