Creating a EYFS 2021 Two Year Check Report


Recommended Posts

Hi there!


In this tutorial I will talk you through how to create a Two Year Check report for the EYFS 2021. The report format is quite similar to creating an EYFS 2021 Report, but you'll notice that there are fewer sections, and there is no option to record CoETL as this is not required for the 2 Year Check. If you would like to record this you could use the EYFS 2021 report template and just record the prime areas.

You can't access the EYFS 2021 Two Year Check report unless the EYFS 2021 flags are active on your Tapestry account. If you are not already using the flags, please follow this guide to enable them.

To create a new report, you will need to login to your Tapestry account via the browser version at https://tapestryjournal.com/. You'll then need to click on the 'Reports' tab near the top of the page (1). You should then see your 'Reports Overview' tab (2). Here you can choose the framework for your report, which you select from the 'Add Report' section, in this case we will be selecting 'EYFS 2021 Two Year Check' (3).




Once you have selected the 'EYFS 2021 Two Year Check' report and chosen the child you'll be writing the report on, you will be taken to this screen: 




First, you'll need to add a title as reports can't be saved without a title (1). You'll also see that there is an 'Options' box (2) containing the 'Status' of the report, which by default will be set to 'draft' and the 'Date' the report was created, you can change these as you need. There are three different types of ‘status’ for a report, these are:

Draft – You can save a report as a draft whilst you are still working on it. Relatives will not be able to see these.

Published – Once a report is published, relatives can then view them.

Staff only – This shows the report is complete but only staff members can see them.

Below this, you will see the 'Child' section (3), this includes the 'Date of Entry to Setting', their 'Date of Birth' and their 'Age in Months at Check', these will all be automatically filled in.

If you don't want to include certain fields in the report or you want to hide the Child section entirely, you can use the 'Hide Field' or 'Hide Section' button respectively.


Next you will see Progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage section where you can write about the Prime Areas of learning in a narrative way, and record how the child is doing developmentally in each of those areas:




In the Future Learning Opportunities section you can record Next Steps or the child's interests, which can be used to support the child's development.




Next you have:

1) Child Voice: If you want to record something the child has said about their learning, this can be added here.

2) Relative Contribution: If the relative has a comment about the report or additional learning information from home add this here

3) Staff Who Contributed to the report:




Below those sections, you'll see the 'Signatures' section (1), here the Key Person, Relative and Manager can sign the report. Please note, a staff member or manager would be able to sign on a relative's behalf. 


The next section will be where you can add any media to your report (2), this will allow you to add photos, videos or audio files and documents e.g. PDFs.


Once you're happy with everything, click 'Save Report' or 'Save and Add Another' and you're all done! (3)




On the next page, you will see the finished version of the Report where you can add any comments. If you want to make your report visible to relatives, you just need to follow this tutorial.
