  2. flexible working request

    it really is a bad show that she decided to do this NOW. I have come up with 3 plans she needs to choose one or the request will be denied outright!
  3. Hi there. Do you have a scrapstore or similar nearby? Ours do excellent loose parts CPD so others may do also. Not too pricey if there are a few of you.

  5. flexible working request

    Oh fm I'm sorry I have no words of wisdom, just sending you good wishes Surely the 'head of trustees' will work in your best interest?
  6. flexible working request

    Ultimately you will have to trust the process. If the request doesn't fit the needs of the business then the employee has two options, alter her demands to work something that the setting can accommodate or find a position elsewhere that can meet her demands. If we bend to support all personal circumstances there wouldn't be a business left to work at and I'm assuming that to hire another member of staff to work around her demands would be next to impossible? (I have found this an amazing counter argument)
  7. New tabs

    Hi thank you for that information. It was on the updated tutorial on the tapestry website. Wondering if you could help us with another issue. We have been filling out the care file for the children but can't seem to find it in their individual journals or account. Do you know ow where to find this information once saved?

    yes I wrote a comprehensive policy for Tapestry with an "you will be blocked" clause. I will just have to hope and pray parents wont disobey the rules. Thanks Sarah

    Hi Sarah, This is an option on the device itself and I'm afraid it's not possible for us to stop parents being able to do this. As mentioned above this is something that I suggest you cover in your learning policy with parents. Best wishes, Emily
  10. flexible working request

    Ok having a nightmare! have refuse a member of staff a flexible working request due to the fact it does not meet the needs of the business. She has gone to appeal on it (from the head of trustees not external) anyone any advice ..seems to be becoming a big problem in a short time frame!

  16. End of year development sheets/trackers

    Hi Rebecca, Thank you so much for your response. That does help a lot. Could i just ask with the trackers, before you went onto tapestry, did you keep the tracker sheets and if so for how long? Thank you

  18. Hi Debi There is risk in any form of information storage, whether it be on paper or stored electronically, and the risk of loss or data breech of paper files presents its own security challenges. At Tapestry, we employ the highest levels of security available to us and safeguarding of information is of paramount importance. All of the children’s information is stored securely within our datacentres, not on local computers within settings, and we employ the very highest levels of security for all of the data we hold. We employ strong authentication and encryption to ensure that only authorised people have access to the information we hold, and then only to the right information. You can find technical details within our contract, which is available under the Tapestry Control Panel. I hope this helps. Tim :-)
  19. Summative assessment HELP

    Hi kabin, Welcome to the forum! I'm afraid when you export summative assessments from Tapestry, this does not include links to any evidence within observations. When you go to the summative assessment page though if you're on the individual view you can click on the 'show details' button to see the observations with assessments in that have contributed towards the score you are seeing. On the group view page to see this you just need to click on the actual assessment. If you were looking for evidence for a specific area/aspect you could use the 'Assessments' tab which you can find on the Observations page. From there you can select a framework, area and aspect as well if you wish, and this will pull up all observations which include an assessment that matches your criteria. To see this for an individual child you can just use the page filters, so click where it says 'Filter & Sort Observations' and then from the 'Child' drop-down, you can select a specific child. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Emily
  20. Hi, we are in the process of setting up Tapestry and getting parental permission. We have just had one parent who is asking to stay with the paper based journals as she is worried about online security, because it seems too easy for computer systems to be hacked. How can I reassure her and hopefully change her mind? Thanks Debi
  21. Staff application form

    That's great, thanks Rebecca
  22. Does anyone know when you print the table for the summative assessment termly is there any kind of written evidence that tapestry provide? if so where do we find it? thank you
  23. End of year development sheets/trackers

    Hi Shanaz, When we were working on paper (we are in Tapestry now) we would only send the child's individual report - no trackers. For us, trackers were about cohorts and groups of children. Any points regarding progress would be addressed in the report 'Billy is making excellent progress' or 'Billy is gradually gaining confidence' for example. The Reception teachers would understand what that means. You would also have conversations with the teachers as part of transition at which time you would raise any concerns that your trackers had highlighted. Hope that helps
  24. Hi! We use the same application form for all staff irrespective of their role - someone working in the kitchen would still need to tell me about their experience etc. I would make the differentiation in the interpretation of the form, not in the form itself. By this I mean that someone writing in response to the question "Why do you want this job?" - 'I run a busy kitchen at home for my family and the hours and flexibility in this post are perfect for me while my child is at school' would be encouraged to interview, whereas I would be looking for a 'I've always wanted to work with children and I have been babysitting for my siblings and cousins for 5 years' is an appropriate answer to the same question if I were recruiting for a childcare apprenticeship position. I hope that helps
