Abstract

The UK Government recommends that children aged
5-18 years participate in a minimum of 60 minutes
a day of moderate to vigorous physical activity on
average every week (DoH, 2019). Whilst schools and
teachers provide numerous opportunities for physical
activity (Daly-Smith et al., 2020), physical education
(PE) represents one of the main means through
which the government guidelines for physical activity
are met. Organisations such as the Youth Sport Trust
(YST, 2020), governing bodies of sport and schools
across the nation advocate high quality PE as part
of the National Curriculum and in optional extra-
curricular sport to ‘all’ children.
