Policy influences on students within school playgrounds

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Regardless of what strategies could be implemented at the individual, social and physical environment levels within the school playground, each level needs to be reinforced by the enforcement of supportive policies. Policy level influences on students’ school playground activities have been largely unexplored. With a reduced focus in schools to make time available for school playground activities, research suggests there should be a stronger focus on school policies to increase students’ activity levels. This chapter will provide an overview for researchers of the policy level influences that have been investigated within school playground activities.
