Developing skills and ambitions

FUNDED by the Premier League Charitable Fund, Argyle Community Trust delivers the exciting Primary Stars provision in Plymouth and Cornwall. Under the banner of Premier League Primary Stars, the programme aims to develop skills and ambition both on and off the sports field with resources for girls and boys aged 5-11 years old.

Building on the existing work within schools by the trust, we deliver supporting sessions, CPD and delivery top teachers, classes and produce development plans to ensure that high quality PE and School Sports exists within all of these schools.

The trust is working with the Premier League and experts in different fields to design resources to get children learning and active. As the project evolves through the Premier League there will be more schemes in addition to the likes of Premier League School Sport and Premier League Reading Stars, so that football and an array of other sports can be used to inspire girls and boys at a key stage in their lives.

Available from the autumn term 2016, the programme provides free curriculum-linked Key Stage 1 and 2 classroom resources for PE, but also Maths, English and Enterprise. New PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) resources will use an array of sport examples to promote equality and diversity, encourage life skills such as teamwork and resilience and deliver key messaging such as anti-bullying.

This will be available alongside a programme of activities, events and teacher support delivered by the Argyle Community Trust.

The Premier League Primary Stars provides free, flexible and easy to use curriculum linked resources available online and through the Argyle Community Trust

There are still some spaces for schools to sign up to Primary Stars in the summer term and the major emphasis is on schools that do not have a specialist PE teacher on site, enhancing sporting opportunities for children in Devon and Cornwall.
