The Premier League’s national primary school programme, Premier League Primary Stars, draws upon the excitement of the Premier League and young people’s interest in football to help inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
Premier League Primary Stars is open to all primary schools across England and Wales where they can access completely free teaching resource packs covering PE, English, Maths and PSHE for children aged 5-11. Real life examples from football provide lesson content, videos and fun activities to enhance children’s understanding and interest across the curriculum.
All 20 Premier League clubs and 74 English Football League and National League clubs have signed up to deliver Premier League Primary Stars. Having reached the original target of 10,000 schools 18 months earlier than expected, the Premier League have announced a new target of signing up 15,000 schools by May 2019.
18 schools have already signed up from Selly Oak constituency and are benefitting from the initiative. Steve McCabe MP is encouraging all primary schools to sign-up and make use of the free resources available to them. All schools need to do is visit plprimarystars.com and register to begin accessing the resources.
Steve McCabe MP commented:
“This is a great initiative to inspire children and young people to learn, be active and develop life skills. Eighteen primary schools in my constituency have already signed up, it would be great to see more in Birmingham join the Premier League Primary Stars.”
Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League said:
“The Premier League and our Clubs are committed to using our reach and ability to inspire children to support them in their learning whether that be PE, PSHE or Maths and English. The need for and interest in Primary Stars has been huge and we have had an incredible response to the programme to date. With more Clubs on board, we are committing even more resource to develop content and will continue to evolve and develop the programme to fit the needs of the teachers and pupils”.
