Item Description: ADDED JANUARY 2013. This paper adopts a novel approach to analysing qualitative data, which presents findings in a manner that is accessible to researchers who have an affinity with both quantitative and qualitative backgrounds. Building on previous research, this formative study sought to elicit subjective views of children, their parents and teachers, in order to triangulate and inform the design of a curriculum-based physical activity promoting intervention. Methodological rigour was demonstrated using ‘trustworthiness criteria’ and co-operative triangulation. This study builds on the need identified by several authors to develop a comprehensive understanding of children and associated significant others’ perceived benefits to physical activity, which is afforded by qualitative research, and, more specifically, is deemed imperative in the design of successful interventions.
