dc.description.abstract Posture is an important behavioural outcome for the child. Having a good posture is one of the objectives that physical education aims to achieve at the Basic Education stage. The present research aims to find out about the child's posture conditions and the postural deformities which the child at this stage may be inflected with. Another purpose is to establish the different proportions of postural deformities in the different body parts; "feet, legs, pelvis, spine, and the upper part." The study sample is made up of 600 randomly selected pupils in classes from the first three grades; 200 children per grade. They all come from North Giza Educational Zone, Egypt. The researcher used the following tests: a) "Plumb line" test (Bankroft). b) the woodruff test, c) the board of squares test, (Posture screen test). d) the foot print test, in order to elicit the front, side and back postural defects as well as foot deformities, The child's posture was examined from the above three direc¬tions while moving and standing still. Defects have been recorded on specific froms that listed 45 types of deformity. The study conclusions show that: * There are feet defects on top of which is "flat foot" * There are pelvic and low part defects, and spinal deformities particularly "head front drooping" similarly. * There are arm as well as shoulder and chest defects particularly "having one shoulder lower than other". The study results also show that the average of the child's postural deformities is directly proportional with age. The percentage of postural deformities vary from one part to another. The feet area has the highest percentage, to be followed by the upper part the spine, the pelvis, and the limbs. Consequently, the study reveals the existence of postural deformities which imply a need to consider the children's postural growth from a scientific perspective for (prevention and remediation). The researcher recommends the cyclical or periodical postural assessment and the writing of a book on posture through which the child comes to know what a good posture is and how to keep it in shape. The child's clothes, tools and playgrounds should be under strict surveil¬lance. All precautions should be taken so as to secure the correctness of the child's posture. The research also includes a proposed nationwide project for the children's postural care which could be implemented at the first cycle of Basic Education. en_US
