There have been smiles all round at Stakeford Primary School after it was awarded a Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment pack.

Delivered by the Football Foundation, this is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to be active and develop useful life skills.

As well as a complete football kit in the school colours, two pupils are pictured wearing it, the scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas.

Jane Fitzsimmons, PE Co-ordinator and Year 3 teacher, said: “We feel extremely proud and honoured to receive this football kit.

“Everyone at the school feels that the children will grow in confidence to compete and show true sportsmanship, which the FA actively promotes.”
