Keeping Enjoyment at the Heart of Key Stage Two Physical Education

Research output: Contribution to Lay press/specialist publicationArticle in lay press/specialist publication

Abstract

Despite the worry that certain political beliefs are commandeering primary school physical education for their own interests, Kascak, Pupala, and Petrova (2011) comprehended hope for education with their belief that humanistic and constructivist discourses (such as enjoyment) are not mutually exclusive to the economising effects (such as performance, efficiency and measurable outcomes) of modern education policy. This leaves the question, how do we acknowledge and explore what our learners find enjoyable whilst meeting the extrinsic aims of an increasingly outcome orientated policy landscape? This article looks at the implementation of social democratic ideals under a neoliberal governance structure created by the 2010 Coalition government’s implementation of new policies. By critically examining intrinsic motivation and practical applications, this article offers a practical solution to the economising effects of contemporary primary school PE and sport policies.
