Abstract:
Physical Education is widespread across the world yet despite its cultural variation it remains remarkably similar. The ability of the subject to replicate its practices makes it a potential site for exploration from a memetic perspective. The purpose of this paper is to examine documentary evidence such as research papers, policy documents and inspection reports and offer for consideration potential memes that are at work within the memeplex of UK primary school Physical Education. Four proposals are offered as potential memes; ‘sport as techniques’, ‘anyone can teach it’, ‘busy, happy and good’ and ‘nowhere important’. It is concluded that the current environment in primary schooling within the UK serves to strengthen the proposed four primary Physical Education memes by reaffirming current practices. Moving beyond these memes requires significant rethinking about what constitutes primary Physical Education.
