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.

Here are the important forms and information documents. It is really important that you complete the information and return to school the documents that are RED. The BLUE documents are for your information-they show you the workings of the school in more detail.
If you wish for hard copies of the forms to be sent simply email us at
and we will arrange for copies to be put in the post.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then be able to set up the account.
