Film: Do you… Play the Right Way?

This exclusive film features well-known players alongside primary school footage. With the objective of capturing the attention of both boys and girls, this film is intended to help challenge pupils to reflect on their own conduct and how this affects others having fun and playing their best.


Starter Activity: Do you… Play the Right Way?

This activity is a quick and easy introduction to addressing football behaviour in schools, using strong Premier League imagery alongside school footage to engage the audience. Pupils will be challenged to reflect on the symmetry of pitch to playground.
