MetadataShow full item record
The 5x60 project introduced to Welsh secondary schools in 2006 has been seen as the possible answer to improving pupils' participation in sport. By providing a variety of sports this initiative aims to increase the amount of children taking part in physical activity, with the overall intention of decreasing the rising obesity rate. However within schools today there are many barriers that are restricting pupils' participation in sport. As a result of the distribution of questionnaires, teachers and pupils' judgments have been gathered. Quantitative data has provided explanations into reasons for the lack of participation in school sport, which has therefore meant that the school of study is aware of improvements that need to be made. Furthermore additional interviews with teachers meant the 5x60 project was evaluated. The qualitative information; discovered that the scheme had made an impact within a Welsh school, despite some teachers initially struggling to grasp the understanding of the project. However the overall findings meant that aspects the 5x60 project still needs to be altered in order to achieve its full potential.
