Supporting Schools During Lockdown

Accrington Stanley Community Trust coaches have been working hard recently to support our local primary schools with their PE delivery. With key worker children still attending schools the need for PE delivery still remains. Staff shortages in schools means there is a growing need for our coaches to help deliver PE lessons.

 

 

The lessons are being delivered as part of our Premier League Primary Stars which was launched in 2016. Primary Stars aims to engage and inspire boys and girls aged 5-11 years old. Primary Schools from Hyndburn, Rossendale and the Ribble Valley can now register for the scheme, which has been carefully developed with teachers and will use the power and popularity of the Premier League to;

  • Inspire boys and girls aged 5-11 in the classroom;
  • Use sport to connect children’s learning to the world around them
  • Motivate children to be ambitious and reach their goals
  • Teach the importance of working together and playing fair

Primary Schools Lead Coach Josh Cooper explains ‘it’s brilliant that with the right measures in place we are still able to offer PE and physical activity. We have to be vigilant, cleaning equipment in-between classes and we only deliver to one bubble at a time. Children have missed out on a lot over the last 12 months, getting active and having fun can be the perfect remedy for this’.

The programme also provides schools with free curriculum-linked resources for PE, PHSE, English, Maths and Enterprise that will inspire children to reach their goals, whilst teaching the importance of working together and playing fair.

Learning materials such as assembly ideas, videos, differentiated activities (online and classroom-based), teacher notes and assessment support will be provided to every school that registers for the programme, along with the chance to win a school visit from the Premier League trophy!
