Premier League Primary Stars

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

The Premier League is aiming to offer curriculum support to 10,000 primary schools in the next two years with the launch of its Primary Stars programme. The initiative offers free curriculum-linked teaching resources for pupils aged five to 11 and free-to-download lesson plans, activities and video content covering maths, English, PSHE and PE.

The programme builds on the existing work professional football clubs offer to primary schools in their communities (Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney is pictured here working with local pupils).

The Premier League’s 10-week Reading Stars programme, created in association with the National Literacy Trust, will also continue as part of the Primary Stars programme.

By signing up to the free resources, schools can apply for Premier League book boxes that feature 15 titles from authors including Jacqueline Wilson, Cressida Cowell and Dan Freedman.

The Primary Stars digital resources have been developed in partnership with organisations including the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.

Primary schools can register for free on to enable access to the programme’s full portfolio of resources
