New Reception Intake 2022

Welcome to Roade Primary school.

We hope that you find the attached presentation useful in helping you and your child settle into our school and our family community.

All Reception children have a personal online Learning Journal, which records photos, observations and comments in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and assessment guidelines. This allows us to build up a record of your child’s experience and learning during their time with us.

As part of this process, we use an app called ‘Tapestry’, where photographs and notes about your child are securely stored. We would like all parents to have electronic access to their child’s observations and there is also the facility to add your own photographs, videos and observations from home. It is possible to have two email addresses per child.

You are also able to download and save the photos and video observations of your child. We recommend that you do this regularly, rather than wait until the end of the school year, as it can take a long time to download everything in one go. Please note that you should not copy any of these photos or videos on to social media as not all children in the pictures have permission for this.  Parents can see individual photos/videos of their child and any group observations. These can only be accessed securely through the website via your email address and password.

If you would like to register for this facility, please complete the Tapestry Permission form and email it to admin@roade-pri.northants.sch.uk. We will then be able to set up the account.
