Premier League Primary Stars and Sky have teamed up to help children learn about simple changes everyone can make to a positive impact on the local and global environment and help prevent further ocean plastic pollution.

The Sky Ocean Rescue campaign #PassOnPlastic aims to shine a spotlight on the issues affecting ocean health, find innovative solutions to the problem of ocean plastics, and inspire people to make small everyday changes that collectively make a huge difference.

Premier League Primary Stars and Sky have teamed up to inspire pupils to reduce single-use plastics.

We are setting primary schools a challenge to help tackle ocean plastic pollution at your school or in your local community.

Key information

We’d like you to decide on a group pledge that will really make a difference.

  • Work as a class or whole school.
  • Discuss your ideas together.
  • Agree on one group pledge.
  • Write your pledge on one of the pledge templates which you can find in the supporting resource pack
  • Describe your pledge in no more than 100 words.
  • Ensure your pledge adheres to the OCEAN acronym.

O - choose just one thing to do or change
C - be clear about what it is
E - make it easy – everybody should be able to do this if they want to
A - ensure it is something achievable (make it realistic)
N - know your next steps to get ready to carry out your pledge

  • Carry out your group pledge and take an action photo. The photograph needs to evidence the pledge is being carried out or capture what you did and show how it was successful. Schools can choose how they would best like to demonstrate this, for example a ‘before and after’ shot.

Please note the pupils themselves do not necessarily need to feature in the photographs.

  • Submit your pupils' pledge through the online form on this page and it will be entered into a prize draw.

  • Entries should be led by pupils in Key Stage 2 at schools in England and Wales
  • Entries must be submitted by the deadline of 22 March 2019.
  • One entry is allowed per class.
  • Only entries uploaded to the website using the online form will be entered into the prize draw.
  • Pledges entered into the challenge should use the pledge templates included in the supporting resource pack.

We have developed a Key Stage 2 pack to encourage children to get involved, learn about what Premier League clubs are doing about this issue and the role everyone can play in protecting both the local and global environment. These resources lead up to the creation of pupils' challenge entry and provide lots of top tips for creating the best pledge possible! These also contain the entry templates which must be used for schools' entries. You need to register to access these resources - it's free and really quick to do.

Prizes

Each teacher who submits an entry will receive a certificate and a #PassOnPlastic icon to use on your school website.

The first 100 schools to enter will receive one class set of 30 reusable water bottles.

Ten schools will win a special visit to the Sky Academy Studios in London to make a film about their pledge.

One lucky school will be visited by Plasticus, the Sky Ocean Rescue whale, the Premier League Trophy, plus some special guests.

Winners will be announced by the end of April 2019.
