Tweedmouth school receives Premier League support
Pupils attending Tweedmouth West First School have been buoyed by the delivery of a free Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack.
Stocked full of items including Nike match footballs, training bibs and numbered and lettered floor markers, the Premier League equipment pack will aid teacher delivery of active lessons across the curriculum.
The equipment pack was awarded to pupils following deputy head Joanne Anderson’s successful application for last year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme.
Mr Graham, Newcastle United Primary Stars community and schools coach at Tweedmouth West First School, said: “Thanks to Primary Stars, Tweedmouth West First School have received fantastic quality sports equipment that will help each student develop many skills through PE lessons, lunchtime clubs and after school clubs – I’m positive the equipment will help students enjoy PE and motivate them to increase their own sports participation.”
The scheme is part of the Premier League Primary Stars education programme.
It which uses the appeal of Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children at primary schools across England and Wales the opportunity to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
PLPrimaryStars.com offers primary school teachers free curriculum-linked resources in English, Maths, PE and PSHE, and opportunities for schools to enter competitions and access free offers like the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment scheme.
Richard Scudamore, executive chairman of the Premier League said: “The Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment packs provide a fantastic boost to schools at the start of the new school year. We hope that coupled with the free downloadable online resources, we can inspire children to do their best in the classroom and on the sports field.”
