If you're brand new to Tapestry and are looking for help on how to create a Tapestry account and what to do when you first login, take a look at one of these:

 

Starting with Tapestry (Written)

Starting with Tapestry for EYFS (video playlist)

Starting with Tapestry for Key Stage 1 & 2 (video)

 

For those of you who already have an account and are looking for something more than the very first things you do when you login, take a look through the list of tutorials below. They will take you through all of the functions available on Tapestry. Many of them require manager access but if you've been set up as a full account staff member or PIN only staff member you may still find these useful, especially those under the headings
'Getting Started with Tapestry' and 'General Use'.

We have now also begun adding video tutorials to our YouTube Channel here

If you have a relative account, the best place to go for help using Tapestry is here. Alternatively you can speak to a manager at your child's setting.
