Premier League Primary Stars

Fleetwood Town Community Trust works with the Premier League to deliver their Primary Stars initiative in local primary schools.

Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills. Available to every primary school in England and Wales, it inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

Learning is connected to the real world of sport to enthuse pupils when tackling challenging PSHE topics such as resilience, diversity, self-esteem, and fair-play.

Fleetwood Town FC Community Trust staff work with teachers to deliver fun, educational sessions in a range of subjects within local partner schools.

Competitions range from national football tournaments to creative writing and reading challenges for reluctant readers. Competitions such as Premier League Writing Stars, a poetry competition where we asked pupils to write poems on the theme of resilience. Hundreds of poems were sent in from participating schools.

Premier League values underpin everything on offer, encouraging children to:

Be ambitious – work hard and never give up on their goals

Be inspiring – set a great example for others

Be connected –work well with others and in a team

Be fair – treat people equally and think of others

The Trust delivers fun and engaging PE activities to help pupils develop their skills in everything from balance and coordination to athletics and throwing skills in line with the National Curriculum.

Challenging topics such as resilience, diversity, and self-esteem, brought to life by personal insights from children and top figures of the sporting world.

Activity-led resources to engage pupils in data handling, calculating time and position and direction, enabling them to apply their knowledge to real-life football challenges.

Build pupils’ confidence in reading, writing and spoken language using examples from the world of sport to explore journalism, poetry, and communication.
