What is PLPS?
Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills. It is available to every primary school in England and Wales and inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in and outside the classroom.
Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free to download lesson plans, assemblies, and exclusive videos. It connects learning to the real world of sport, helping teachers to enthuse pupils when tackling challenging PSHE topics such as resilience, diversity, self-esteem, and fair play.
Meet the Team
My name is Duke, and I am the Equality Diversity and Inclusion lead. I promote and research initiatives and campaign around EDI.
My favourite activity is to support the PLPS coordinator with presentations on Anti-discrimination. The difference it makes is the young people are more aware about their behaviors and thoughts when engaging with other peers.
My name is Pat, and I am a Premier League Primary Stars Sport and Schools Coach for Pompey in the Community.
I support the PLPS coordinator with sports coaching and educating students through physical activity. I love engaging the children through teaching them new activities and games to play.
I’m Jordan I’m a Premier League Primary Stars Sports Coach for Pompey in the Community. My favourite activity to engage the children with PLPS is PSHE. This really targets areas in participants strengths and weaknesses. This doesn’t just help in school, but it also makes real differences outside of school.
I believe Primary Stars makes a huge impact in schools because it targets certain areas that children struggle to interact with activities and socialise with others. PLPS targets workshops that aim to help overcome this.
I’m Sam and I’m the Premier League Primary Stars Coordinator. My favourite activity to engage kids with PLPS is active Maths Interventions. Being able to engage reluctant learners through sports and P.E sessions with added work around times tables, factors and multiples, making connections and seeing patterns in numbers, all the while being active and having fun. For example, we worked on our dribbling skills in football by moving around a small area and around numbered markers. We then remind about odd and even numbers and how that can help us with our 2 times table. That is then linked to 4’s and 8’s and how the children can use what they do know to help with what they don’t.
Being able to access free educational CPD for teachers, interventions and whole class lessons for the pupils in a variety of subjects. All delivered by highly qualified professionals representing the city’s football club. As a new face in schools and finding inventive ways to deliver the curriculum, children are engaged and more willing to learn.
