Local primary school children attended Turf Moor on Thursday afternoon to take part in a Premier League Primary Stars session.
Pupils from Water Primary, Worsthorne Primary, Newchurch St Nicholas C of E, Brunshaw, St Mary Magdalene R.C Primary School, and St Mary’s Rawtenstall were invited to a table discussion on how Burnley FC in the Community can enhance the programme output moving forward.
Led by Gwil Jones and Leigh Jeffrey, the children also had a tour of Turf Moor, getting the chance to go pitchside and meet Bertie Bee.
Premier League Primary Stars (PLPS) is the league’s most ambitious project to date. It uses the appeal of the league and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills, with a view of supporting the holistic development of children.
PLPS is available to every primary school in England and Wales. It inspires children aged 5-11, both inside and outside the classroom, whilst underpinning all elements with high-quality teaching materials that cover English, Maths, PE and PSHE.
There are free to download lesson plans, assemblies, and exclusive videos to support the programme. It seeks to connect learning to the real world of sport, helping school staff to enthuse pupils to learn about resilience, diversity, self-esteem, and fair play.
Burnley FC in the Community’s Premier League Primary Stars offer includes:
After school clubs
Reading Stars and Maths Attack intervention are also available to support literacy and numeracy.
