The central theme of this study was to analyse how the Governments Initiatives, through the School Sport Co-ordinator Scheme (SSCo), have impacted on two Primary School’s in Penwith, Cornwall. The importance of Physical Education was highlighted along with many discrepancies that are often associated with the provision of PE. To gather the data that was needed to conduct this research qualitative data collection was used. This was used as it allows the researcher to study selected issues in detail, which can give richness and depth that you are not likely to get through other methods. The data collection method that was used in this research was indepth and semi-structured interviews, which provides flexibility, spontaneity and responsiveness to individual differences and situational changes. The study concluded that there has been a very positive response to the scheme within the schools that were part of this research. Connor Downs County Primary School showed very good levels of participation in PE and accredited much of the progress to the SSCo. However it was also identified at St. Erth County Primary School that there were some factors, such as facilities and time, which affected the implementation of the scheme and of the PE curriculum. Thus limiting the amount of time spent on PE.
