Premier League Primary Stars Programme

Premier League Primary Stars Programme

Premier League Primary Stars Programme (PLPSP) 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.
Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free-to-download activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, fun assemblies and exclusive videos.

The main support is given to The Premier League Primary Stars Programme by The FA’s PE Unit supporting the development of the coaches working within the programme. The Unit to continues to increase this support to County FA’s, Universities, Further Education & other partners linked to The FA’s strategic goals.

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

Professional football club staff work with teachers to deliver fun, educational sessions in a range of subjects within local partner 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 to others
  • Be connected - work well with others and in a team
  • Be fair - treat people equally and think of others

The easy-to-use resources, which link to the national curriculum, have been developed in partnership with primary school teachers and subject experts, such as the PSHE Association and National Literacy Trust.

Club support and online resources are also designed to help primary school teachers improve their confidence and skills in delivering PE lessons. An example of this can be seen in the below link:
