Medcalf, Richard and Marshall, Joe and Rhoden, Clare (2006) Exploring the Relationship Between Physical Education and Enhancing Behaviour in Pupils with Emotional Behavioural Difficulties. Support for Learning, 21 (4). pp. 169-174. ISSN 0268-2141.
This article contributes to an evidence base suggesting that PE offers particular advantages for promoting improved behaviour. The research design involved using statistical approaches to investigate the behaviour of four male pupils, aged 15 year old, all of whom were statemented for EBD in mainstream classes. Assessments were made of both Pre- and Post PE lesson behaviour for 10 consecutive weeks. ‘On task’ behaviour improved following PE lessons leading to the conclusion that the sequencing (and, potentially, activity levels) in subject curriculum planning may be a factor in improving pupil behaviour.
