TWO Cornwall Primary Schools, Mount Hawke and Blackwater, are set to have the Premier League Trophy on site for the day, after being nominated by a parent who registered for the new Premier League Primary Stars Programme, a free online resource for teachers across England and Wales.
Mount Hawke and Blackwater were selected at random as a reward following a parent’s Premier League Primary Stars nomination, which encouraged the school to be part of the programme which uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
This prize-giving is the culmination of the national campaign, which encouraged teachers and parents to sign-up to the free online curriculum-linked resources, which has so far seen more than 9,000 parent nominations for over 5,000 primary schools. Premier League Primary Stars inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field and is available to every primary school in England and Wales. The website offers a range of resources specially designed to use the inspiration and fun of sport to connect pupils’ learning to the world around them, including information packs, classroom assets, videos and planning tools, all curriculum-linked for English, Maths, PE and PSHE.
Premier League Primary Stars also encompasses events like the Premier League Schools Tournament and offers, like the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme, which has seen schools apply for free Nike strips for their school football team and special equipment packs.
