At Qatar International School, we use an online learning journal system called ‘Tapestry’. When your child starts at school, we will create an account for you to activate. Once you have set a password and pin for your account you will be able to view your child’s learning journal.
Online Learning Journey – parents’ guide
All children attending QIS have a personal online Learning Journey which records photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us.
The Tapestry system is hosted in the UK on secure servers. You will have secure access (via email address and password) to your child’s Learning Journey and, in addition to viewing our contributions, we encourage you to add to it by uploading photos and comments or commenting on observations made by us.
Where do I start?
Once you have given us an email address, we will set up an account for you. Download the Tapestry app from your play store (search for Tapestry Mobile). Log in using your email address and the password we give you. We strongly recommend that you change your password on your first visit.
Viewing my child’s Learning Journey
Once logged in, you will see your child’s observations on your home screen in a list. Selecting any one of these will open up the observation for you to look at. You may add comments in the box at the bottom of the observation if you would like to – and we would love to receive such comments!
