Learning Journals

In order to use Learning Journals, you will need to create your own login details by providing us with your email address – you will then receive an email from Learning Journals with instructions on how to create a username, password and PIN number.

By signing up you are:

  • giving permission for photographs of my child to be uploaded to Learning Journals platform.
  • giving permission for my child’s photograph to be included in group images which may be shared on other pupils’ Learning Journals.
  • agreeing that you will not give anyone access to your child’s learning journal or the images available.

Please read the following security information:

  • Only you and relevant school staff (teachers and management team) can access your child’s profile using a unique username as well as a password and PIN that you create. Please do not share this information with others.
  • If you do not wish your child to be in group images then please contact the school directly.
  • Any data collected within the profile, including photos, are for personal use only and should not be published out with Learning Journals.
  • All personal data, including photographs, email addresses and information about your child’s progress are stored securely, within the EU.
  • Data will be retained for the time your child is a pupil at the school. If/when your child leaves the school for any reason all data will be deleted as part of the leaving procedures by administration staff. If your child moves to a school which also uses Learning Journals their profile will be temporarily archived by Learning Journals and made available once your child starts at the new school.


Across the year, your child will receive 8 OBSERVATIONS and these have been outlined below. This is different from Nursery where children usually receive weekly ‘Story Updates’.

August – December: Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing
January – March: Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing
April – June: Literacy and Numeracy (alongside a written report in June)

It would be great if you could ‘like’ an observation when it has been published. There is also an option to leave comments on your child’s work however please note that teachers will not respond directly to any comments. Any queries or questions should go through the school in the usual manner.

In November 2019, Learning Journals launched a new app in the the App Store and Google Play Store. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of times you have to sign in and your child’s profile will be available at the press of an app! Click one of the images below to download:
