Abstract: Children sit for extended periods in the school classroom. Movement integration (MI) methods (e.g. active breaks, physically active lessons) could be used to break/reduce sitting time and improve classroom behaviour and engagement. Limited evidence is available on teacher perceptions of what influences the implementation of MI. Interviewed primary school teachers reported factors perceived to influence implementation at a variety of levels including individual (e.g. teacher and pupil characteristics, time, behavioural management) and school (e.g. whole school approach; and external to school expectations). In addition suggestions for increasing adoption and implementation of MI (e.g. communicating MI initiatives to schools) were identified.
