Free football kit and equipment is being made available to primary schools across England and Wales, as the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme is open for applications until Friday 26 October 2018.
The Premier League Primary Stars programme is a national curriculum-linked education initiative, designed to inspire children to learn, engage and be active. Using the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs, the programme provides ways for teachers to inspire girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.
The Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment scheme offers primary schools the opportunity to apply for free resources which can be used for active classroom sessions and PE lessons. The scheme is run in partnership with Nike and delivered by the Football Foundation.
Who can apply?
Applications can be made by teachers registered on PLPrimaryStars.com who are working with pupils aged between 5-11 years and based at a school in England or Wales. To benefit as many schools as possible, only schools that did not receive a Premier League Primary Stars kit or equipment pack in the last two seasons are eligible to apply during this window.
What are the timings?
Successful primary schools can expect to receive their kit or equipment from distributor, Kitlocker, in the summer term 2019.
• This year's application window is open until Friday 26 October 2018.
• If your application is successful, you will receive a notification during the week commencing Monday 5 November 2018.
• Successful applicants will be sent a redemption code and link to an online portal to select their kit or equipment. They will need to claim this by Friday 21 December 2018.
Once processed, your school will receive the kit or equipment May–June 2019. (Exact delivery times will be confirmed with you.)
Schools should visit the Football Foundation website for details of how to apply for the kit and equipment – and how to access the other exciting Premier League Primary Stars resources that are available to them.
