Our easyjet  sponsored Free Schools Visit Project provides free curriculum time football coaching and PE lessons to all schools within Luton and Bedfordshire and perfectly compliments our Premier League Primary Stars project which seeks to raise the delivery of school sport as well as connecting with and inspiring local school children. 

 

In practise it means we will visit over 40 schools each week reaching over 1,500 local school children every single week during term time free of charge. That adds up to over over 1,500 free PE hours delivered into local schools each year by Hatters coaching staff and a very effective way of reaching the next generation of supporters!

So, how do the two schemes compliment each other! Well, our easyjet free school visit project is specifically designed to provide primary schools with support in improving the provision of PE and sport and physical activities, both during curriculum and extra-curriculum time. The aim is to provide higher quality, positive experiences for all pupils, enabling positive teaching and learning, alongside increased participation opportunities and playing pathways with our youth development and academy system.

 

This free support to schools includes PE curriculum lessons, Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) activities, enrichment sessions, through to breakfast clubs, lunch-time activities and after-school clubs and also a range of competitive opportunities for children, helping inter-school and District schools football programmes.

 

The Premier League Primary schools project also uses the appeal of football and sport to connect and inspire local school children using both the Hatters brand locally as well as the Premier league brand that all children recognise. Under the banner of Premier League Primary Stars, the programme aims to develop skills and ambition both on and off the sports field with resources for primary age girls and boys.

 

The Primary Stars programme will provide free curriculum-linked Key Stage 1 and 2 classroom resources for PE, but also Maths, English and Enterprise. New PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) resources will use an array of sport examples to promote equality and diversity, encourage life skills such as teamwork and resilience and deliver key messaging such as anti-bullying. Primary Stars will be available alongside a programme of activities, events and teacher support to enhance teacher’s and non-qualified PE staff knowledge, skills and confidence to improve the provision of PE and school sport.
