Using literature and logical analysis methods, this paper studies the dilemma and realization path of professional development of primary school physical education teachers and researchers under the new curriculum standard. Development connotation: Implementing the new curriculum standards and shouldering the important mission of upgrading teaching and research; serving new development and advancing the deepening reform of school sports; broadening new horizons and meeting the intrinsic need for self-realization; empowering high quality and promoting the development of regional teachers. Development challenges: The top-level design is insufficient, and an urgent need to enhance mechanism construction; unclear role positioning, requiring improvement in identity recognition; inadequate understanding of teaching, weak knowledge in physical education research; insufficient professional guidance, resulting in weakened effectiveness of educational research services. Implementation paths: Optimizing the top-level design and improving the construction of management mechanism; enhancing training platforms, elevating teaching and research capabilities; emphasizing curriculum leadership, strengthening professional identity recognition; fostering collaborative innovation, driving educational resource sharing.
