 In 2007 Sport Wales produced guidance for practitioners delivering the new Foundation Phase curriculum for children aged 3-7 years. A focus was on physical development and in 2009 a resource entitled Play to Learn was developed supported by a website launched in 2011. The present study addresses (non-)engagement with the website. Based on a qualitative study (interviews and focus groups) with a small cohort of parents from a primary school in South Wales, the findings revealed some of the reasons for only low levels of engagement from parents / carers. ‘Hard copy’ resource materials were considered more useful than electronic media.
