The principal, recess activity, and the profession of the school-age educare teacher : A qualitative study of how the principal perceives school recess and how the principal interprets the assignment to plan and carry out structured and meaningful activities during recess time (English)
Abstract [sv]

Utifrån sitt professionella uppdrag blir fritidsläraren ofta den som får ansvara och planera för rastverksamheten i dagens skola. Bakgrunden och tidigare forskning till min studie lyfter fram rastens betydelse som en etablerad del av skoldagen, behovet av planeringstid för rastverksamhet och hur planeringen anpassas till det pedagogiska uppdraget.

Med den här uppsatsen vill jag försöka bidra med ny kunskap kring det fritidspedagogiska uppdraget och hur det relaterar till rastverksamheten i dagens kontext. I val av studiemetod kom jag fram till att kvalitativa intervjuer skulle fungera bäst för att undersöka hur rektorerna hanterar och resonerar kring fritidslärarens handlingsutrymme och ansvar vid rastverksamheten. Fem djupintervjuer genomfördes med rektorer vid fyra skolor i Storstockholmsområdet samt vid en skola i norra Dalarna. Resultatet av studien visar att rektorns syn på rasten är att den är en meningsfull och viktig del av skoldagen.

Rektorerna anser också att rastverksamheten ingår i fritidslärarens uppdrag. Samtidigt visar resultaten att rektorerna ger olika förutsättningar till tid för planering och uppföljning av rastverksamhet. De rektorer som ger fritidsläraren planeringstid för rasten ger ingen extra tid utan den förläggs inom fritidshemmets egen planeringstid.

Abstract [en]

Due to their profession, school-age educare teachers are often assigned responsibility and planning of recess time in today’s school. The background and former research for this study emphasizes the importance of school recess as an established part of the school day. The background as well as the research also illustrates the need for planning time for recess activities and how this planning is adjusted to the educational mission.

With this essay I want to try and contribute new knowledge for the mission of school-age educare and how this relates to recess activity in today’s context. In choosing my research method I concluded that qualitative interviews would work best to examine how principals deal with and their reasoning regarding the school-age educare teachers’ room for action and responsibility concerning recess activity. Five in-depth interviews were conducted with principals at four schools in the Greater Stockholm area as well as one school in the northern part of the province of Dalacarlia. 

The results of the study show that the principals’ view on recess is that it is a meaningful and important part of the school day. Principals also feel that recess activity is the responsibility of the school-age educare teacher. At the same time the results show that the principals give different pre-conditions when it concerns time for planning and to follow up recess activity. Those principals that give the school-age educare teacher planning time do not allocate any extra time but the planning is meant to take place within the planning time for the educare center.
