Foundation Primary Stars Programme improves learning in schools
Hundreds of children in the Leeds area have benefitted from a specialist reading and education project ran by the Leeds United Foundation.
The project, the Premier League Primary Stars, operates in more than 28 Primary Schools in Leeds and uses the appeal of football and sport to inspire children aged 5-11 to enjoy reading.
Since its inception in 2016, the programme not only provides free curriculum linked Key Stage 1 and 2 classroom resources for PE but also for maths, english and enterprise sessions.
The project, ran in conjunction with the Premier League, uses the power of football to connect with young people to enjoy reading, learning and gain a greater enthusiasm in education.
As well as reading programmes, the Foundation works to help Primary teachers to deliver great PE and school sport in schools, increases children’s enjoyment in sport and learning and helps to increase pupil’s confidence.
The Foundation works with 100s of children to help improve their education, communication and confidence skills and one pupil Leah from the Lady Elizabeth Hastings Primary school has told us just how much she’s enjoyed the programme.
