Abstract

The learning area of Health and Physical Education (HPE) is marginalised and compromised through policies that result in low numbers of HPE specialists being employed in schools, particularly primary schools; negative perceptions and misconceptions about the learning area; lack of professional respect and professional development and misguided pedagogy that fails to engage the 21st Century learner. This qualitative research examines the policy, practices and management barriers to Health and Physical Education (HPE) curriculum delivery. It examines the disconnect between the intended curriculum and implementation and enactment of the curriculum in schools, and education authority directives identifying HPE as a learning entitlement for all Australian children.
