Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education

Gary Stidder, Gordon Hayes

Research output: Other contribution


Teachers, academics and politicians have historically had different views about what it means to be ‘physically educated’ or what inclusive physical education is and today there still remains a lack of consensus. The aim of this article is to shed some light on the matter and establish exactly what physical education teachers are expected to do, what they are not expected to do and what they can realistically achieve in the time at their disposal with all pupils irrespective of their ability. Physical education teachers are more than just games masters and mistresses, sports coaches, physical trainers, or fitness instructors and yet this is often the stereotype the media choose to portray on the television and in the cinema.
