To mark the recent launch of the Premier League Primary Stars, Premier League players have been visiting primary schools across England and Wales to take part in lessons.

Yesterday saw Everton player Morgan Schneiderlin visit St Aloysius Catholic Primary School in Huyton to join a Premier League Primary Stars PE session delivered by Everton in the Community which involved a game of dodgeball with the group of 10-11 year-olds.

Morgan Schneiderlin said “It’s been great to visit the school today and see how Premier League Primary Stars is inspiring the kids to learn and be active.

The dodgeball PE lesson was really fun and helps to teach the kids to improve their communication and discipline. When you see the look on their faces it makes days like this really special.”

Whilst he was there, Morgan also helped launch the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme.

The scheme gives schools the opportunity to get their hands on a full team kit or a range of useful equipment that can be used for different subject areas, with this year’s application window open from 24 April – 9 June.

The visit delighted teachers and pupils. With Year 5 and 6 teacher, Hannah Evans, pleased to see the positive impact the visit had on the pupils, “Premier League Primary Stars has been great at teaching the children important life skills such as resilience that they can apply in other lessons and not just sport. Thank you to Everton and Morgan for coming into the school today – I’m sure it’s a day that they will all remember for the rest of their lives!”

Schools visits are to continue throughout the week with Hull City, Burnley, Watford, Stoke City and Southampton all sending players back to school!
