Holy Trinity School is an official Everton in the Community Premier League Primary Stars Partner School. This program uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills. It inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field. Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to PSHE, teamwork and PE.
Learning is connected to the real world of sport to enthuse pupils when tackling challenging PSHE topics such as resilience, diversity, self-esteem and fair-play. Professional football club staff work with teachers to deliver fun, educational sessions in a range of subjects within local partner schools. Premier League values underpin everything, encouraging children to:
• Be ambitious – work hard and never give up on their goals
• Be inspiring – set a great example to others
• Be connected – work well with others and in a team
• Be fair – treat people equally and think of others.
The resources, which link to the national curriculum, have been developed in partnership with primary school teachers and subject experts, such as the PSHE Association and National Literacy Trust. Everton in the Community offers a diverse way for schools to engage and access Primary Stars.
