Background

Chloé graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2012 with a BSc First Class Honours degree in Sports Education and Sports Development. She also received awards for achieving the best academic performance within the School of Sport and Exercise and the best overall performance on an undergraduate programme at the University. Chloé subsequently went on to secure studentships to complete her MSc by Research degree at the University of Gloucestershire and her PhD at Loughborough University, of which she is now studying. Her continued interest in marginalized young people has stemmed from her undergraduate degree and seen her focus specifically on looked-after children for both her Master’s degree and PhD, within the context of education and sport.

Project information

Exploring the physical education and school sport experiences of looked-after children

Looked-after children have been noted as representing a ‘hidden group’ in relation to sport and physical activity research, policy and practice. Chloé’s project seeks to explore the PE and school sport experiences of looked-after children in a UK context, in order to gain a better understanding of the opportunities available to and challenges faced by these young people. She is being supervised by Dr. Rachel Sandford and Prof. John Evans.
