dc.description.abstractAim: The purpose of this study was to identify what motivates 12-14 year old boys to participate in physical activity and education. More specifically to identify the barriers they may experience which prevents them from engaging in their physical education (PE) lessons. The identified barriers were used to encourage the participants to identify strategies that could be put in place to improve the PE provision in their school. Method: Twenty boys aged twelve to fourteen from two schools in the Cotswolds participated. The data that was collected from four focus group interviews. Themes were identified such as pupil’s motivation in physical education, learning environment, activity choice and stereotypes, which represented the opinions of the boys. Results: The findings demonstrated the various external factors that can influence a young individual to take part in physical education. Although gender stereotypes affected participation, it became clear that stereotypes relating to image were of a greater concern. Concerns were expressed relating to coeducational lessons, in particular, the variety of activities that would be available if girls were included in the lesson. In addition boys acknowledged that a limited activity choice within one school was a reason for disengagement in PE. Conclusion: In all of the key themes, the PE teacher was seen to be the most influential factor in ensuring that pupils participate in PE. Implementing strategies to involve young people in decision making regarding their learning has been shown by the participants in this study to positively influence their motivation and improve the learning environmenten_US
