Premier League Primary Stars

PLPS banner

Premier League Primary Stars is a national programme which aims to use the national appeal of the Premier League and professional football to inspire children to learn, be active, and develop important life skills.

This programme has been carefully developed with teachers to use the power and popularity of football to motivate children and connect their learning to the world around them. It provides schools with resources linked to the curriculum of Physical Education (PE), Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE), English, Maths, and Enterprise that will inspire children to reach their goals. 

Through Premier League Primary stars, our community staff are on-hand to provide partner schools with learning materials such as assembly ideas, videos, differentiated activities (online and classroom-based), teacher notes along with assessment support. The Shrewsbury Town in the Community team are also available to deliver supporting sessions in schools to increase the value and impact of this innovative programme.

Competitions are also ran through the programme which range from national football tournaments, to creative writing and reading challenges for reluctant readers. A recent competition has been Premier League Writing Stars – a poetry competition where pupils were asked to write poems on the theme of resilience.
