Research highlights the value of PE in schools and the need for high quality PE is well recognised by sports educators and the government. Although the value of this is prevalent, research has found barriers in delivering high quality consistently across schools. The present study aims to explore further into the prevalence of high quality PE in Secondary Schools in South Wales, highlighting areas of success and discussing barriers that may have influence on the delivery of high quality PE. In order to discuss these issues and collate data, semi structured interviews with four experiences, male and female Heads of Departments took place. The research took on a qualitative design approach through means of an inductive analysis. From this, four key themes emerged these being, barriers in delivering high quality PE split into time constraints and facilities/funding, health fitness and well being and finally support from key stakeholders in helping to deliver high quality. The results highlighted areas of particular success as well as barriers to preventing high quality from being achieved. The findings of the study suggested that these barriers need to be considered further when trying to ensure that high quality PE is being delivered to all learners within secondary schools and could promote further research into how these barriers can be overcome.
