Premiere League for Southway!
Monday 2nd October 2017
Southway Primary thrilled to receive Premier League Primary Stars kit!
Pupils and staff from Southway Primary are celebrating after being awarded a Premier League Primary Stars kit.
The pack contains ’15 Nike Football Kits’, which will benefit the current Felpham and Bognor champions (2016 and 2017).
The Kit and Equipment Scheme forms part of the Premier League Primary Stars offer to primary schools in England and Wales. This is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas to get children active.
Also available is a free downloadable suite of resources for teachers across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, Maths, PE and PSHE. The easy-to-use materials have been developed in partnership with education organisations including the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.
Mathematician Rachel Riley and children’s authors Cressida Cowell and Dan Freedman also helped to create the teaching packs, which use real life sport examples to put lessons into a relevant and engaging context for children.
Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League and Football Foundation Trustee, said: “Congratulations to Southway Primary on their successful application for a Premier League Primary Stars Kit pack. We hope this kit, coupled with the free downloadable online resources, will help teachers harness the popularity of football to inspire primary school kids in everything from Maths and English to teamwork and sport.”
Mr McIntosh, Year 6 class teacher, said: “The news of receiving the kit has been a great reward for all the hard work our pupils have put in on the pitch. This kit will be hugely beneficial. It will allow our football team to have their own kit, as well as, providing the school with the existing kit that can be used for other teams. It’s great to see the Premier League now supporting education.”
