🌟 5 years of Primary Stars

The Premier League is celebrating five years of its schools’ programme, Premier League Primary Stars.

Launched in 2017 and available to every primary school in England and Wales, Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to support pupils in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

To celebrate the Foundation has been releasing content across the social media channels showcasing the incredible work that coaches have done over the 5 years.

💬 Primary Star Head Coach, James Howiantz said, "We are proud to be recognising National School Sports Week at the Robins Foundation. It is important to realise the value that sport has within schools, and the vital impact that it has on the lives of children up and down the country.

We will continue to promote the benefits of sport and physical activity to develop children in our community to reach their potential. Being part of events like this at Headley Park helps to raise the profile of sports within schools.”

Premier League Primary Stars provides teachers and parents with free downloadable resources across a range of curriculum subjects at Key Stage 1 (age 5-7) and Key Stage 2 (age 7-11), developed by teachers for teachers, and in collaboration with experts such as the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.

Currently, 105 professional football clubs from across the leagues run in-classroom Premier League Primary Stars sessions in local schools. More than 58,000 teachers have signed up to access free online national curriculum-linked resources.

💬 Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “We launched Premier League Primary Stars five years ago to support teachers and use the power and popularity of football to inspire children in the classroom and on the sports field.

“Clubs do fantastic work to support children’s learning and we are very proud that this national education programme now engages more than 18,500 primary schools in England and Wales."

The Premier League funds Premier League Primary Stars and other community programmes through its £100m investment per season in community facilities and community and education programmes. This is the biggest voluntary contribution to communities and other good causes of any football league in the world.
