Tapestry Newsletters

Tapestry Newsletter December 2021


Hi everyone!

Just a short (and slightly earlier than usual) newsletter this month.

Communicating Progress with SLT Webinar and Article

Firstly, we have released some extra resources this month: A webinar and an accompanying article both aimed at practitioners. They explain how you might show progress with the new EYFS on Tapestry and how you can communicate this to your SLT.


Another helpful article

Another article published on the Tapestry website this month was from Anya, one of our Education Advisors. In this article, Anya explains how you can use your observations and reflections in conjunction with the Areas of Concern screen.  

If you’ve been wondering how to get the most out of this new screen, or if you’re interested in using Reflections more effectively then do take a look.


Product Support Reminder

Just a quick reminder that our Product Support team will be working 9 – 5 every weekday over the festive period. Bank holidays not included.

If you need to reach us about anything, please email customer.service@eyfs.info.


Ed tech awards

We are delighted to be recognised in the 2021/2022 EdTech 50 Awards Yearbook – ‘a celebration of the people, products and organisations shaping the use of education technology across the UK’


Feature Focus

You can enable an “additional information” box to use on your observations by going to Control Panel > Settings > Observations.

This box will appear underneath the “notes” section and can be used for whatever you wish. This was initially created as a space to add information that wasn’t needed in the notes section. By default, this ‘additional information field’ can’t be seen by relatives but you can manage that permission from User Permissions > Relatives > Observations.

Wishing everyone safe and happy holidays.
