Your word count usually starts from introduction to the conclusion.

Cover Page, Contents Table, Appendices, Abstract -> Not included in word count.

BUT, ask your teacher just to make sure :)

Good Luck!

what about the research proposal and action plan?

The research proposal is NOT part of the word count for this assignment, however it should be around 200-300 words, no longer than 500 (Can't see this in the syllabus but if you want to know a maximum word limit for this section, you should just ask your teacher)

The proposal contains the question, framework, methodology and action plan. Look around page 50 of the syllabus for more information.
