The aim of this work was to analyze the discourses and images about school physical education present in the Guide of Physical Activity for the Brazilian Population. A documental research of qualitative approach was carried out, based on the Discourse Analysis and the Visual Content involving the chapter. School physical education, in the recommendations of the Guide, assumes a functionalist and utilitarian view of human movement. It is understood the progress promoted by the Guide, especially by encouraging and valuing school physical education in Brazil. However, it is essential to transform the current discourse, predominantly biomedical, into an approach that values body culture in its multiple contributions to the formation of students.
