To celebrate the start of the new term a selection of top Premier League stars are joining pupils in schools across England and Wales to take part in their PE lessons.
The players will donate a free equipment pack whilst there to mark the opening of this year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme.
The scheme offers primary school teachers the chance to apply for a free Nike football strip or a free equipment pack for their school
Premier League footballers are heading back to school to celebrate the opening of this year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme and joining PE lessons to encourage children to be active on their return from the summer holiday break. Visits so far have seen Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier heading to St John Vianney Catholic Primary School and Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady joining Fairfield Primary School for a PE lesson to remember.
Whilst at the schools, each footballer will donate a Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack, including footballs, numbered and lettered floor spots and giant dice, which teachers at the primary school can use in lessons across the curriculum to help inspire children to learn and get moving.
“We are pleased to launch the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment scheme for the third successive year and give primary school teachers the chance to apply for a full Nike football kit for their class, or an equipment pack which includes items that will encourage children to be active throughout their school day.Having footballers head into local primary schools to deliver free equipment and get involved in Premier League Primary Stars PE sessions is something I’m sure will having a positive and lasting impact on pupils and teachers alike.”
