The Foundation Phase Profile. Online. Free.
What is this?
The Foundation Phase Profile is specifically designed for the unique context that is the Foundation Phase in Wales. Children between the ages of 3 and 7 learn through guided and structured play and exploration, so the team creating the Profile wanted to put child development at its core. So designing an assessment framework to both support children’s learning and to accurately describe and measure their progress was a huge challenge.
A free tool
Once we’d completed the development of the Profile, we wanted to share it with all the Foundation Phase settings in Wales. That’s why we created Incerts Baseline for nursery settings—a free, slimmed-down version of our main online tool, Incerts.
If you’re assessing nursery children in Wales, or baselining reception children, you can record on the compact version of the Profile. It's easy to identify the children's next steps and calculate their Outcomes for submission to the Welsh Government.
