Policy for physical education and school sport in England, 2003–2010 : vested interests and dominant discourses

Policy for physical education and school sport in England, 2003–2010 : vested interests and dominant discourses

In line with these targets, central government was later working (2008) to deliver PSA 22 through PESSYP which set out an even more ambitious success measure referred to as the ‘five hour offer’. PESSYP built on the work of PESSCL with support from an investment of £783 million to improve the quality and quantity of physical education and sport undertaken by young people aged 5-19 (Sport England and Youth Sport Trust 2009). However, after the election of 2010 a Coalition government formed between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats replaced the Labour government which had introduced the PESSCL and PESSYP strategies. In October 2010, the Coalition government announced the decision to cut school sport ring-fenced funding including PESSYP infrastructure and its work strands by the end of March 2011. Nevertheless, despite the abrupt change of policy direction this decision initiated, this period of intensive government investment in PESS during the 2000s remains of considerable interest. This is because it provides us with key insights into the process of socially constructing policy in which particular priorities for PESS sponsored by particular vested interests become visible.

ATTITUDES TOWARD PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF DELHI

ATTITUDES TOWARD PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF DELHI

Knoppers, 1988). Treanor, Graber, Housner, and Wiegand (1998) and Lirgg’s (1993) reported that both boy and girls secondary school students showed preferences for single-sex PE. Osborne, Bauer & Sutliff (2002) found that secondary school students preferred single-sex PE. Koca et al. (2005) also indicated that both girls and boys in coed educational high school preferred coed PE class. In Turkey, especially after 1997, Ministry of National Education have started to use “students” as target audience in all of the Physical Education course instruction programs in primary schools, high schools and equivalents. It is stressed that such units have to be practiced together to all students without girl-boy separation (excluding wrestling and soccer branches in girls). Thus, the possibility of different expectations from girls and boys with different physical and emotional status were not considered in the preparation of the program. In spite of the growth in the studies on the effectiveness of PE, sport science literature that have investigated students’ attitudes toward PE and on PE class preferences according to age and gender are limited.

Examining entrepreneurial traits of the school of physical education and sports students with respect to certain demographic variables: Case of Istanbul Gelişim University

Examining entrepreneurial traits of the school of physical education and sports students with respect to certain demographic variables: Case of Istanbul Gelişim University

The purpose of this study was to reveal whether the entrepreneurial level of students attending the School of Physical Education and Sports, Istanbul Gelisim University varied based on their demographic characteristics. The t-test and ANOVA showed that there was a significant difference between genders, age groups, and grades in terms of entrepreneurial tendencies. The t-test and ANOVA also showed that department and branch of sports had no effect on entrepreneurial tendencies of the students. The Entrepreneurship Scale for University Students used in this study has a single-factor construct, and higher scores equal higher entrepreneurial levels. The results obtained in the study show that the students attending the School of Physical Education and Sports, Istanbul Gelisim University have high entrepreneurial tendencies. In our study, male students were found to have higher entrepreneurial tendencies compared to female students. Veciana (2005) reported that males were more determined and eager to start their own business after graduation. This result is consistent with our findings. Male students have higher entrepreneurial tendencies compared to female students. The Puerto Rico data of this study shows that, contrary to our findings, there is no difference between males and females in terms of starting a business. Örücü (2007) examined the association between entrepreneurial tendencies of Senior students from the Balıkesir University and familial factors, and found that male students had higher entrepreneurial tendencies compared to female students. This result is consistent with our findings.

The School Sport Co ordinator Programme: Changing the Role of the Physical Education Teacher?

The School Sport Co ordinator Programme: Changing the Role of the Physical Education Teacher?

The success of the School Sport Co-ordinator programme in relation to this wider objective of improving children’s attitudes and motivation to schooling assumes that the activities, but perhaps more importantly, the ethos underpinning them, will be first and foremost educational, and that the opportunities will be accessible and involve all young people. Certainly the official discourse of the programme is firmly about social inclusion and improving the representation of marginalised groups in school sport. The School Sport Co-ordinator Handbook includes three chapters with information and advice on working with identified under- represented groups: girls and young women; ethnic minorities and young people with disabilities. Similarly, the NOF funding provided to support after school hours PE and sport clubs as part of the programme will not be released to individual partnerships without the development plans showing clearly identified target groups and educational outcomes for the planned activities. However, getting involvement from under-represented groups will not be easy. Previous research has shown that it is children from middle class families that have been over-represented in earlier initiatives, such as Champion Coaching, aimed at increasing young people’s involvement in sports activities (Collins and Buller, 2000). Young people’s sports involvement continues to be heavily differentiated by gender and ethnicity, with girls and children from ethnic minority backgrounds, under-represented (Rowe and Champion, 2000). Whilst it is still early in the life of the Northbridge partnership, observational and interview data suggest that a sporting discourse has been dominant in the work so far. Whether the School Sport Co-ordinator programme can contribute to the social inclusion agenda of the government will depend, to a large extent, upon efforts and philosophies of individual SSCos, working within their school catchment communities but also in partnership with staff inside their own schools. It is hoped that future research will be able to report on this aspect of the Northbridge partnership as it develops.

Linking secondary school physical education with community sport and recreation for girls: a process evaluation

areas [3], despite adolescents from low income communi- ties having lower levels of PA [9]. As a result, a school- community linked PA-promotion intervention program targeting adolescent girls living in low-SES Australian rural and regional communities was developed, imple- mented and evaluated. The aim of the program was to improve Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL), levels of PA, and a range of potential mediators of PA (e.g. self- efficacy, perceived sport competence). The outcomes of a pre- and post- evaluation of effectiveness of this program found that: 1) The intervention had a protective effect on the intervention group’s health-related quality of life (HRQoL), whereby the intervention group maintained their HRQoL, whilst a decrease was observed in the con- trol group. 2) There were no statistically significant dif- ferences between groups for any of the PA measures including - mins of leisure-time moderate-vigorous physical activity (LTMVPA), MET-mins of LTMVPA, or in the proportion meeting PA guidelines. 3) Among ‘completers’ — those who had participated in the both the in-school component and outside of school commu- nity component — the intervention had positive effects on intra-personal capacities (i.e. self-efficacy, self-management, perceived behavioural control, outcome expectancy-value) and inter-personal factors (i.e. support from family and friends) [10]. Understanding the reach, adoption and im- plementation of this program is important to help under- stand why the program was successful in achieving some of the intended outcomes and why other elements were not achieved.

Physical education, school physical activity, school sports and academic performance

Physical education, school physical activity, school sports and academic performance

Parents concerned about decreases in study and home- work time may be better advised to question the time their children spend on TV and computer games rather than the time that they devote to PE, PA or sports in school. Indeed, the more children watch TV, the greater the decline in their academic results. [96] At least one Cana- dian study found that the time devoted to PA was posi- tively associated with the time that school-aged children spent in reading. [97] Parents interested in the health and academic success of their offspring should focus on the increased prevalence of various metabolic pathologies in which sedentary behaviour plays a key etiologic role, for example, obesity and type 2 diabetes, both of which are beginning at an ever younger age. [98] Such pathologies have the potential to affect school performance adversely, although this is an area where more research is needed. [99] In one recent article, obese 3 rd grade girls (8 years

Promoting physical activity among adolescent girls : the Girls in Sport group randomized trial

Promoting physical activity among adolescent girls : the Girls in Sport group randomized trial

The Girls in Sport intervention was part of an initiative in the state of New South Wales (NSW), Australia called the Premier’s Sporting Challenge [9]. This Challenge aimed to promote participation in sport and physical ac- tivity among children and young people attending gov- ernment schools (approx. 70% of students). As part of the Challenge, the NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC) commissioned a consortium of re- searchers to work with the Department’s School Sport Unit and selected school communities to design, imple- ment, and evaluate a multi-component school-based ini- tiative to promote physical activity among adolescent girls. Girls in Sport incorporated components of previ- ously successful school-based interventions among ado- lescent girls [10–12] such as enhanced school sport, changes to the school ethos and strengthening community-based links, along with extensive formative research, to create school and community environments that promoted physical activity among adolescent girls through school sport, physical education, recreation, and leisure time activities. The primary aim of Girls in Sport was to determine if an 18-month school-based interven- tion targeting school sport, the school environment, and links with the local community could slow the decline in physical activity among adolescent girls compared with matched control schools that did not receive the intervention.

Being Barefoot  Prevalence at Home, in School and during Sport: A Cross Sectional Survey of 714 New Zealand Secondary School Boys

Being Barefoot Prevalence at Home, in School and during Sport: A Cross Sectional Survey of 714 New Zealand Secondary School Boys

45.3%of boys were classified as habitually barefoot. The prevalence of habitual barefoot activity in our New Zea- land sample is between that of almost completely (90.9%) barefoot South Africa and completely (100%) shod Germany. The German and South African data comes from school aged (primary and secondary) chil- dren and adolescents (n = 849) surveyed by Hollander et al. [2]. Cultural and climatic differences are likely to con- tribute to differences in footwear habits between Ger- man and South African children. However, South Africa’s lower world ranking in terms of economic re- sources compared to Germany (93rd vs. 19th) will also contribute to most children in South Africa being habit- ually barefoot. [15] By contrast, New Zealand is an industrialised country ranked closer to Germany (35th vs. 19th) in terms of economic resources. Despite similar economic wealth, 50% of boys in our sample from an area of high socioeconomic status were barefoot at least half of the time at home, during physical education and sport. This may suggest that cultural and climatic differ- ences are the primary reasons for differences in footwear habits between German and New Zealand students. New Zealand and Germany both share a temperate climate in contrast to South Africa’s mixed arid and temperate cli- mate. [16] It is plausible that a greater mean temperature in New Zealand encourages more barefoot Table 2 Prevalence of barefoot frequency among 714 secondary school boys n (%)

competitive sport. PE requires further improvement in about one third of primary schools and one quarter of secondary schools. In primary schools, some teachers lack the specialist knowledge needed to teach PE well and outcomes for pupils are not as good as they could be. More able pupils are not always challenged to achieve their very best, levels of personal fitness are not high enough and not all pupils are able to swim 25 metres before they leave school. PE in secondary schools does not always contribute to improving pupils’ fitness. More able pupils do not have enough time to practise and achieve their very best. Only a minority of schools play competitive sport to a very high level. Only a few schools have achieved a balance between increasing participation and generating elite performance: in these schools sport was played to a very high standard.

Designing a Framework of Stakeholders’ Participation in School Sport Decisions

Designing a Framework of Stakeholders’ Participation in School Sport Decisions

School sport director uses two distinct methods based on the importance of the decision. The importance of the decision was a critical variable when deciding on engaging in which the decision-making process. Some school sport director decisions are routine and do not require much attention, while some decisions require attention and participation from other stakeholders (4). Minor decisions, including the schedule of teachers, and the management of classes and hours of training are done by school sport director and alone. The main difference deals with how to make major decisions. The formation of school sport teams, use of high quality and qualified physical education teachers as well as high-level coaches for school sport teams, the place for physical education classes, and the purchase of sport facilities and equipment are major decisions. According to the results of Lingard et al. (2013), some school sport directors make major decisions, such as financial and budget decisions alone (25). For this reason, within the framework an arrow has been drawn from major decisions toward solo approach. On the other hand, based on the Linton study (2013), some school sport directors tend to have stakeholder participation when making major decisions (26). Stakeholders’ participation in this process often begins with primary stakeholders (the inner most circle) which then works its way to the outer most circle of stakeholders, depending on the decision. In Figure 1, the solid line represents that the decision-making committee on the location of physical education classes as well as the purchase of sport facilities and equipment are often smaller with the primary stakeholders being involved in these decisions. On the other hand, the decisions made to change the school's sporting policies are depicted with a dotted line and include primary and secondary stakeholders (physical education teachers, students, principals/superintendents of school,

Sport preferences survey - future of martial arts

Sport preferences survey - future of martial arts

School physical education is the factor, which should con- tribute to level of physical activity. The current situation in the area of school physical education is unsatisfi ed and need changes, i.e. in organizing, staff, PE teachers’ qualifi cation, methodical teaching. One of the main reasons is the fact, that school represents one of the basic socializing factors in the human development as well as family, peers, and consid- erably infl uences human perception of lifestyle [24]. We can fi ght against this inactivity of children and youth by promoting quality school physical education and improv- ing predispositions for physically active lifestyle in adult- hood. Physical education represents one school subject, where there are compensated health risks. The underrat- ing of the physical education and the work of PE teachers can lead to deterioration of physical education and belit- tling of the importance of this school subject.
