The Perception of Overweight Pupils by the Group of Pupils during the Physical Education and Sports Class


Overweight produces discrimination and marginalisation during the physical education and sports (P.E.) class. The purpose of this research is to identify the way in which pupils with normal weight perceive their overweight peers, with the aim of identifying the problems of collaboration and co-participation within the teams and pairs established during P.E. classes. The semi-directive interview method was used; it was applied on a class of pupils aged 11 and 12 from a school in Timisoara. The interviews were processed using the thematic analysis and show the fact that pupils with normal weight avoid interacting with the overweight peers for fear of being identified with the latter.
