These Foundation Phase Flexibility Pilots provide a key step in helping ensure the Foundation Phase is successful in improving early years education. The two main aims of the evaluation are: a) To evaluate how the pilots are being implemented; and b) To evaluate the effect increased flexibility has on families.
This two-year evaluation will look at how schools have used this new grant and what impact this additional resource has had on these children and young people.
This research aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of the secondary analysis of administrative data-sets to delineate patterns of participation in Higher Education and, thereby, to contribute to the development of policy and professional practice in Widening Access in Wales.
WISERD is undertaking an independent evaluation of the Foundation Phase early years education policy for the Welsh Government.
Growing up in 21st Century Britain will provide a unique opportunity to explore in detail the potential geographical benefits of longitudinal data, and develop spatially-based analyses of this data within the mainstream social sciences area of education.
