Bespoke Frameworks: Summative Assessment Screen

We’ve added a new tracking screen which is compatible with your bespoke frameworks. The new Summative Assessment screen allows you to:

  • View and monitor children’s attainment against the framework for each child in each period
  • Override any assessments you think need updating, and add new assessments quickly
  • Lock each period for each child
  • Export the data to a CSV or PDF

There’s more information on this new bespoke framework tracking screen here. You can access the screen yourself on Tapestry from Tracking > Bespoke Frameworks.


The Tapestry Survey

Get your voice heard – Tapestry 2024 survey

Our annual survey is now live and is for everyone working in the early years and primary education sectors. It's quick to complete and we’d love to hear from you on topics such as the expanded offer for two-year-olds, how educators are using AI, and proposed Labour early years and education policies. 

As in previous years, we use the findings in our articles, to support our public relations and marketing, and to help shape the development of Tapestry and the Foundation Stage Forum. 

The survey should take 5-8 minutes to complete. To take part, please follow this link.
