Premier League Primary Stars programme

Premier League Primary Stars is an education programme which aims to inspire learning, promote an active lifestyle and develop important life skills.

The programme targets two main beneficiaries; young people aged 5-11 years old and primary school teachers.

For teachers, the aim is to increase their confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE. For young people, the aim is to provide engaging sessions that increase enjoyment and participation in sport and physical activity. Furthermore, we deliver PSHE, English and Maths sessions in order to improve attainment, school engagement and aid social development.

CACT’s Primary Stars delivery is bespoke to each school in order to achieve maximum impact on pupils, the school and our local community.

Successes of the programme include:

  • Improved teachers’ confidence of delivering PE and sport
  • Increased pupils’ enjoyment of PE & sports
  • Improved pupils’ attitudes towards learning (English, Maths & PSHE)
  • Improved pupil attendance
  • Increased participation in competitive sport and activities

For a range of competitions and teaching support resources for Key Stage 1 & 2 pupils, schools can sign up FREE here

Joy of Moving programme

Joy of Moving

CACT delivers a programme for schools in Greenwich and Kent in partnership with Ferrero and the EFL Trust. It is part of Ferrero’s global Kinder+Sport initiative to encourage children to take part in physical activity, build awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and adopt an active lifestyle.

Over the course of six weeks, Key Stage 2 children will spend nine hours learning about the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. 

Each week, the children will take part in a 90 minute session; spending 45 minutes in the classroom covering six different topics related to the body, nutrition, the importance of exercise and information about food groups, in line with the recommendations in the Government’s eatwell plate; and then they will spend 45 minutes taking part in a practical session. 

These sessions inspires children to move through play whilst developing key skills in four major areas: physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions, creativity and life skills. Each game combines different elements of these four key areas. It is the combination of these vital skills within the games which help children to learn in an engaging way.
