  1. Also with the new GLD section why are we not able to select baseline as our starting point? Is that something that might be added at some point?
  2. Once baseline is completed and locked can it still be changed if observations include assessments during the period set? My baselines were locked but I can see they have all changed slightly...
  3. KS1 analysis

    Hi Lauren, We would like to extend tapestry into Y2 next year and gradually stop using target tracker. What we need to be able to do is track the children's progress so anything that could help us with that would be great. I would imagine for our KS1 teachers it would be useful to be able to look at progress from term to term, especially with Lit and Maths. I will have a chat with them and ask them if they have any other specific things they would like... ::1a
  4. KS1 analysis

    Any news on this? I am running a training session for heads in our local group and would like to be able to give them some info on this. At the moment are Y1s are using tapestry and also target tracker and it would be great to have to option to move to just using tapestry. Thanks.
  5. Hi I was lucky enough to attend the Early Excellence EYFS conference yesterday. As part of this conference they told us about the hundred review. This is following on from the likelihood of a complete review of EYFS based on some of the things written in the report Effective Teaching Practice in Primary Schools. Some of the ideas considered to be effective are very alarming to me! For example, suggesting that the most effective Reception classes are those that bring elements of Year 1 into their practice... Anyway definitely worth reading the report but if you would like to be part of research that is based on what actual practitioners see as effective go to the Early Excellence website and sign up. They need as many people as possible to do this in order for anyone to actually take on board what is said. I, for one will be taking a stand!

  7. merging accounts

    Just as predicted I have heard nothing from the previous school despite emailing and ringing to leave my number. Very glad i didn't wait and set up an account anyway!
  8. merging accounts

    Yes I have done this before and the actual transfer didn't take long. it was getting hold of the other teacher to organise it that was a pain! Thank you for the link. Now i have this info I can get her set up and i will merge once transfer is sorted
  9. Hi I have a new child who started yesterday. She already has a tapestry account with her old school. i know how long it can take to organise transferring as I have done it before... If I set her up a new account with us while we wait will I be able to merge the two accounts or do i need to wait...
  10. 'About Me'

    It would also be useful if we were notified when parents have filled these in. I asked mine to do this and didn't realise when they had completed them. It was a great way to get the parents to engage with Tapestry tho!
  11. Baseline and tracking

    That's really helpful. Thank you! ::1a
  12. Hi Have used Tapestry to input my Baselines for my new cohort. Is there a way to include this in the analysis section so that it is the starting point for tracking? Also the analysis section doesn't give the option of looking just at baseline scores. is there a way of doing this?
  13. KS1 analysis

    Yes that's fine. I'd be happy to help if I can!
  14. We are currently using tapestry for all of our assessment and tracking in EYFS. Y1 are also using tapestry but additionally using Target Tracker to record tracking info. After this year we may wish to roll out tapestry for tracking into KS1 but there is no analysis option for KS1 currently. Is this something you are planning to add in the future? If so, what sort of time frame would this happen in?
  15. survey

    Is it possible to create a survey that parents can complete on tapestry? Was just thinking of sending out a questionnaire post induction to see how parents feel about the process and an online survey would be great!
