Pupils and staff have been celebrating after being awarded a Premier League Primary Stars kit. Miss Simmonds entered a competition and WON! We have received a whole new football strip. The team chose democratically which colour strip they wanted.
Our old kit was getting very shabby and the team were in need of a new one. The Kit and Equipment Scheme forms part of the Premier League Primary Stars offer to primary schools in England and Wales. This is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills. Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas to get children active.
Also available to us is a free downloadable suite of resources to use across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, Maths, PE and PSHE.
Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League and Football Foundation Trustee, said: “Congratulations to Chickerell on their successful application for a Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment pack. We hope this kit, coupled with the free downloadable online resources, will help teachers harness the popularity of football to inspire primary school kids in everything from Maths and English to teamwork and sport.”
Mr West, our PE Co-ordinator, is delighted with the new kit. It has been very lucky for us so far, we won 2:0 against Beechcroft recently!
