Parent & Carer Communication
Communication Book (Yellow Book)
When your child starts at Starfish you will be supplied with a yellow communication book. Please make sure this book is sent to nursery every session your child attends. This is a useful way to communicate with parents/carers over minor incidents that may have occurred during the day. It is also an ideal way for you to notify/communicate with your child's Key Worker.
All communication with the Nursery and parents/carers is sent using Parentmail – Please make sure we always have up to date mobile/email for your Primary contact.
School & Nursery website
Please check our school & nursery website for all information/updates, a vast amount of information can always be found here.
By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to access your child’s journal, if appropriate, through 'Tapestry' software. Parents are only able to view their own child’s journal and all information is stored on a highly secure server, which is monitored closely.
Tapestry online learning journeys allow you to view your child’s observations and photographs, if appropriate. Please note, however, that staff spend most of their time directly facilitating children's learning; only a limited amount of photographs will be uploaded.
Please contact Mrs Punchard (Data Manager) if you are experiencing problems accessing your child’s Tapestry account.
We have a Stanley Green Infant Academy and Starfish Nursery Page and a Parent’s Group on Facebook (this is a closed group), this is used as a way of communication between parents. We appreciate not all parents/carers use Facebook therefore it is not used as a method of communication between the nursery and parents. Parentmail will always be our main point of communicating.
