Percentage of children achieving the foundation phase indicatorIt is statutory to assess pupils in Year 2 at Foundation phase. In Foundation Phase, the mandatory areas of learning are “Personal and social development, well-being and cultural diversity” (PSD), “Language, literacy and communication skills” (in English (LCE) or Welsh (LCW)) and “Mathematical development” (MDT). The foundation phase indicator (FPI) represents the percentage of pupils achieving at least the expected outcome in LCE or LCW, PSD and MDT in combination.

General description

Some information on education has not been updated. With the rollout of the new Curriculum for Wales from September 2022 onwards the collection of teacher assessments at the end of the Foundation Phase or KS2 has come to an end. The collection KS3 teacher assessments were suspended in both 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic; the data collection will resume in summer 2022. Due to the cancellation of the normal examination period in both 2019/20 and 2020/21 and the ongoing disruption to schools as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic performance measures have not been calculated for both Year 11 and sixth form cohorts.

The Census collected individual records on all children receiving care and support, including those looked after by a local authority, who had an open case with a local authority on the 31 March that had been open for the three months from 1 January to 31 March.

For each child in the Census, the Unique Pupil Number was collected to allow anonymous matching of children in the relevant age groups with the National Pupil Database.

Only pupils attending local authority maintained schools have been included in the analysis. Children who were Educated Other Than At school (EOTAS) have been excluded, and Independent schools are not required to provide the data at pupil level.


Data collection and calculation

Anonymised individual child level data is extracted from local authority administrative systems and returned electronically to the Data Collection team within the Welsh Government using an online secure data transfer system called 'AFON'. The AFON system applies an extensive series of validation checks to ensure that the information provided uses the correct codes and is internally consistent.
