|dc.description.abstract||This study explored teacher’s perceptions towards the implementation of the ten
outcomes of High Quality Physical Education (HQPE), whether any gender issues
occur during delivery Physical Education (PE) and identify what potential barriers
teachers face when delivering PE.
The study identified six key themes: aims and values of PE, delivery of PE, extracurricular
programme, lifelong participation, barriers of delivering PE and potential
solutions. The findings indicated a pedagogical difference between male and female
PE teacher’s perceptions of HQPE.
It indicated that the male teachers produced a high level of skill performance within
their extra-curricular programme, and used their PE lessons and fitness clubs to
enhance competitiveness. It found that female teachers value the importance of
inclusion in their lessons, and separate PE and extra-curricular as two different
programmes. This suggests that, the male teachers should adapt their teaching to
ensure inclusion of all pupils, and not just the skill and competitive element.||en_US
