About Primary Stars

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.

Our Values

  • To inspire children to lead healthy, active lives.
  • To engage children in all aspects of their learning.
  • To motivate children to be the best they can be.
  • To develop school staff to feel confident and eager to teach PE.

Our Vision

To use the inspiration of Burnley FC, Burnley FC in the Community and the Premier League to inspire all children across surrounding regions to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

Our Mission

To offer a primary school programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and Burnley FC to improve and enhance Physical Education (PE) and other curriculum areas. We look to develop those crucial skills and values that will lead the children we work with to lead healthy, active, well-rounded lives.

PLPS Values

Each of these four key values are integral to every part of the PLPS initiative. Throughout the planning, delivery and evaluation phases we make it certain that we are not just creating talented sports-people, but outstanding people who can play a part in making our communities a better, more prosperous place for society to live and operate.
