The Foundation Phase (introduced\ud in 2008) provides a developmentally\ud appropriate experiential curriculum\ud for children aged 3-7 in Wales. The\ud Welsh Government commissioned\ud independent evaluation (led by\ud WISERD) aims to evaluate how well\ud it is being implemented, what impact\ud it has had, and ways in which it can\ud be improved. The three-year\ud evaluation utilises a range of mixed\ud methods at a national and local\ud scale.\ud This is one of five papers focused\ud on practice. It draws on 239\ud classroom and setting observations,\ud 341 practitioner interviews, 604\ud school and setting survey\ud responses, 37 Local Authority\ud interviews and four non-maintained\ud organisation interviews.
