Attempting to amend this literature gap as well as inform the current…

Motivating styles are believed to develop through teachers' prior…

Ní Chróinín, Déirdre; Fletcher, Tim; Jess, Mike; Corr, Méabh – European Physical Education Review, 2020
While there may be some broad agreement about the purposes of primary physical education, there is dramatic variance in how these purposes are prioritised and enacted. Primary physical education consequently focusses on multiple, often competing, priorities. To gain a better understanding of this issue we review how different stakeholders view the…
