North East Schools Learn More About Premier League Primary Stars

More than thirty teachers and school representatives from across the region attended St. James’ Park last week to learn more about Premier League Primary Stars.

Newcastle United Foundation have been delivering the programme in schools since 2016, reaching almost 30,000 primary school pupils each year.

Attendees were treated to a presentation highlighting the key aspects of the Primary Stars initiative, and how working with the Foundation could be of benefit to not only pupils but the schools as well.

Representatives from the National Literacy Trust and the Youth Sports Trust were also in attendance to provide further background on the impact the Foundation and Premier League Primary Stars.

They highlighted the positive effect the initiative has had on the physical and mental health of children who have taken part – as well academic results and outcomes.

Liam Atkin, Schools Partnership Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation said: ‘The event was a good opportunity for schools to get to grips with what we can offer them through Premier League Primary Stars.’

‘There have been some incredible improvements in participant’s attitude, behaviour, and learning since we started in 2016, and we’re looking to expand on this success by inviting more schools to take part in the coming year.’

The Foundation would like to thank the national Literacy Trust and the Youth Sports Trust for their invaluable input at the event.’

Premier League Primary Stars provides free, curriculum-linked Key Stage 1 and 2 classroom resources for PE, PSHE, Literacy, and School Sport.
