The article presents findings of a sociological survey of 6-7-year schoolchildren to probe their attitudes to the school physical education curriculum and identify the key factors of influence on the All-Russian Physical Culture and Sport Complex “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) revival in the national education system. The motivators for sports and health improvement exercises, as reported by the 6-7-year pupils polled, were dominated by the desires to go in for physical education, sports and tourism; abstain from smoking and alcohol; get rid of other bad habits; and maintain a reasonable diet to avoid overeating and starvation. Furthermore, the study identified the key reasons that prevent the 6-7-year pupils from physical education and sport activity, including the too intensive school workloads, lack of free time and the inconvenient school schedule. The survey of the 6-7-year pupils' attitudes to the GTO Complex and tests gave the following results: 42.7% of the pupils polled reported positive attitudes to the GTO Complex and readiness for the tests; 24.4% were rather positive than not; 25% were neutral in their attitudes; 1.2% were rather negative than not; 3.7% were expressly negative; and 3% responded being unaware of what the GTO Complex means.
Keywords: 6-7-year pupils, pupils' attitudes to physical education and sports, All-Russian Physical Culture and Sport Complex “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) in national education system.
