    This academic year, Sky Blues in the Community are working with local schools to deliver a programme known as ‘Premier League Primary Stars’. Premier League Primary Stars is part of the Premier League’s wider commitment to expanding its schools offer to every primary school across England and Wales.

    Premier League Primary Stars uses the inspiration and fun of sport to connect primary school pupils’ learning to the world around them, with the Premier League values – ambitious, connected, inspiring and fair – at its core. An online platform has been created to provide free educational resources for primary school teachers and pupils – focusing on the topics of PE and PSHE (with additional content for Maths, English and Enterprise coming soon).

    Alongside this online platform, Professional Football Club Community Organisations (like Sky Blues in the Community) are playing a fundamental role in delivering activities under the Premier League Primary Stars banner to schools in their local area to support both Teachers and their pupils.


    On Tuesday 29th November 2016, Coventry City FC First Team Players came to visit the Premier League Primary Stars activities taking place at two local primary schools – Howes Community Primary School in Coventry and Race Leys Infant School in Bedworth. Players included: Marvin Sordell, Reice Charles-Cook, Ivor Lawton, Jodi Jones, Ruben Lameiras, Lee Burge, Jack Finch and Daniel Agyei.

    During their time at the schools, the children asked the players a variety of questions particularly around how they became a professional footballer, what inspired them and what their own experiences of PE were when they were at school. Following the Q&A, all of the players actively took part in the PE lessons with the children – encouraging and supporting them to develop fundamental skills. The players also stayed for photographs and to sign autographs for the children.

    Howes Primary School’s Deputy Head, Rebecca Bollands said: “We are really excited to be taking part in the Primary Stars programme. Our children are learning both sports skills and the importance of respect. Staff have been developing confidence in delivering lessons to help children make progress in football. The visit from the CCFC players was a real highlight especially as the players were such good role models for our pupils.”

    Any chance you could arrange for players to visit Ernesford Grange Primary, they've had visits from sbitc, Cov Bears and Wasps, but I know the children would love to see some actual ccfc players. Thanks.
