The aim of the study was to find out whether Physical Education was meeting the expected learning outcomes in the Namibian Lower Primary Phase as outlined in the syllabus. The study adopted qualitative approach and used face to face interviews and document analysis to collect data. The circuit Inspector, Advisory teacher, four Principals, and ten class teachers were interviewed. Results demonstrated that teachers were frustrated and had given up teaching PE in schools due to a lack of equipment and facilities. In some cases, learners were left on their own without a teacher during PE periods and important activities in the syllabus were not being taught. There was no clear evidence that PE was meeting the expected learning outcomes in the Namibian Lower Primary Phase.
