Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyse the production and enactment of senior school Physical Education (PE) curriculum policy reforms in Western Australia. The study captures a period of change when high-stakes examinations in PE began and where an Australian Curriculum intersected with State reforms to impact the curriculum. The concept of a 'policy trajectory', which spanned global to school levels, was used to frame data collection and analysis. How PE curriculum policy evolved
in light of the complex and dynamic processes involved was the focus. A series of policy tensions was identified, leading to recommendations for the future.
