Abstract: A review of the revised physical education syllabus published in 1999 by the Ministry of Education,for implementation in the year 2000, showed that vaulting is not part ofthe repertoire of experiences for the primary school pupil. Perhaps the perceived "danger" associated with the apparatus resulted in its omission. This article will consider some ways in which vaulting may be taught safely and effectively to our pupils, using an educational gymnastics approach. An overview of the vaulting action is provided so as to help the reader understand its movement requirements. In addition, a rationale for teaching the vault is given from the perspective of growth and motor development.
