Eastfield Primary School thrilled to receive Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment

November 1, 2017

 

Pupils and staff from Eastfield Primary School, in Wolverhampton, are celebrating after being awarded a Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment pack.

 

The pack contains a full football kit – shorts, socks and shirts which will be used by the school’s Girls and Boys Football Team when competing in citywide school football tournaments and competitions.

 

The Kit and Equipment Scheme forms part of the Premier League Primary Stars offer to primary schools in England and Wales. This is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

 

Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas to get children active.

 

Also available is a free downloadable suite of resources for teachers across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, Maths, PE and PSHE. The easy-to-use materials have been developed in partnership with education organisations including the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.

 

Mathematician Rachel Riley and children’s authors Cressida Cowell and Dan Freedman also helped to create the teaching packs, which use real life sport examples to put lessons into a relevant and engaging context for children.

 

Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League and Football Foundation Trustee, said: “Congratulations to Eastfield Primary School on their successful application for a Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment pack. We hope this kit, coupled with the free downloadable online resources, will help teachers harness the popularity of football to inspire primary school kids in everything from Maths and English to teamwork and sport.”

 

Sarah Hay, Head Teacher, said: “Thank you so much to the Premier League for gifting the kit and equipment pack, the children will look so professional when representing the school in football competitions in and around Wolverhampton.”
