Kirkcaldy, 19 April 2016
We are very pleased to announce that after a successful trial we replacing our old paper based system of personal learning plans (PLP’s) with an online system created by Learning Journals.
This means that parents\carers will now be able to access their child’s profile any time they want, as long as they have an internet connection.
Learning Journals are going to enable the child’s keyworker to make observations of learning in a fraction of the time it would have taken previously. This means that staff are going to have so much more time to play, teach and care for the children instead of filling out paperwork. It’s also extremely environmentally friendly too!
Parents\Carers are also going to have much easier access to the development and progress of their child, and it will be easier for them to contribute too from the comfort of their home!
The system is very secure. For the techy types among you the connection is made using a secure server holding a SSL certificate. (Meaning the address starts with https and carries the padlock symbol.) Parents\Carers will be the only one outside of the nursery that can view their child’s profile and be able to access it with a unique username as well as a password and PIN.
