Tapestry is an online platform that allows us to share your child’s learning journey with you. This has been a popular tool with our families, as it enables you to see how your child is learning at school.
What is Tapestry?
Tapestry is a piece of software that we use in our Nursery and Reception classes. This is a tool to record observations and assessments at school, which we can then share with you at home. In addition, you can also add home learning to share with us. Tapestry can be downloaded as an app or accessed via the website – upon gaining your place you will be asked to provide your email address so that we can sign you up onto Tapestry with a secure password. Only you can access your child’s profile and all data is encrypted to a secure server.
Class Dojo is an online platform that incorporates our behaviour system. At DPA, we use Dojo points to inspire and motivate children. These points are based on our IB Learner profiles to nurture children into kind, caring and responsible people.
Each child is assigned a ‘Dojo monster’ and can be awarded points throughout the day. As a parent, you can have access to Class Dojo via the website or a free app and this enables you to see your child’s points, connect with the school community by reading whole school posts and engage with your class community. Each class will upload posts to keep you updated with events and news and you will also be able to add photos and work to your child’s portfolio.
