Liz Kendall, Leicester West MP, visits Forest Lodge Community Primary School

By Premier League Primary Stars · Mon 06 November 2017


Forest Lodge Community Primary School in Leicester recently received a visit from their local MP, Liz Kendall, so that she could see first-hand the fantastic impact Premier League Primary Stars and the Leicester City Community Trust have had on pupils at the school.

Leicester City Community Trust visit the school once a week to help deliver PE, English, Maths and PSHE curriculum-linked activities. Headteacher Clare Caldwell commented: "The children are really inspired, not only by the logo, but by Filbert visiting, the coaches coming in… not only to play sport, but to take part in reading, writing and maths activities - the impact of this programme has been great."

Liz Kendall was delighted to see the impact the programme has had on the school, adding, "Using the power of football, not just to get kids playing and physically active, but inspiring them to read and write about football which can then in turn boost their confidence, to then take that in to reading and writing about other things, I think it is really important and completely inspirational."
