Abstract

Physical Education (PE) plays a critical role in the development of young people’s attitudes towards Physical Activity (PA). Schools have been deemed one institution which is responsible for the development of positive attitudes through the effective delivery of PE. This study aimed to assess how pupil’s attitudes towards PE and PA differed from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4. The research included the views of 53 pupil’s from one West Sussex secondary school and used questionnaires to collect the data. The data showed a variety of attitudes towards areas of PE which pupil’s enjoyed, didn’t enjoy and found most memorable. The study found pupils from both groups had largely positive attitudes towards PE. Attitudes towards PE lessons were most affected by the activities which pupil’s engaged in, with pupil’s showing a clear desire to have choice in their PE lessons.
