Abstract: Considering recent attention to the school's role in physical activity promotion, this study describes experiences of primary school teachers who implemented a movement integration programme in their classrooms. Teachers' perceptions are important to consider when developing and implementing movement integration resources. The teachers in this study highlighted perceived benefits to their students as an attraction to movement integration, cited barriers of time and space, and requested support related to movement integration implementation. When considering future research and practice we must continue to seek out effective ways to support classroom teachers while considering the multiple levels of influence present in schools.
