premier leagueDenton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne, joined MPs and Peers to attend an event in Parliament focused on the Premier League’s national primary school programme.

The Premier League Primary Stars programme draws upon the excitement of the Premier League and young people’s interest in football to help inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

Premier League Primary Stars is open to all primary schools across England and Wales where they can access completely free teaching resource packs covering PE, English, Maths and PSHE for children aged 5-11. Real life examples from football provide lesson content, videos and fun activities to enhance children’s understanding and interest across the curriculum.

All 20 Premier League clubs and 74 EFL and National League clubs have signed up to deliver Premier League Primary Stars. Having reached the original target of 10,000 schools 18 months earlier than expected, the Premier League have announced a new target of signing up 15,000 schools by May 2019.

22 schools have already signed up across the Denton and Reddish constituency and are benefitting from the initiative.

Andrew Gwynne said:

“I’m encouraging all primary schools to sign-up and make use of the free resources available to them. All schools need to do is visit and register to begin accessing the resources.

“With more football clubs on board than ever before I’m confident that the programme will continue to evolve to fit the needs of the teachers and pupils”.
