PUPILS attending Ghyll Royd School, in Burley-in-Wharfedale have been buoyed with the delivery of a free Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack.

Stocked full of items including Nike match footballs, training bibs and numbered and lettered floor markers, the pack will aid teacher delivery of active lessons across the curriculum.

The equipment pack was awarded to pupils at Ghyll Royd School following Headteacher David Martin’s successful application for last year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme.

The scheme is part of the Premier League Primary Stars education programme which uses the appeal of Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to be active and develop important life skills.

Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League said: “The Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment packs provide a fantastic boost to schools at the start of the new school year.

“We hope that coupled with the free downloadable online resources, we can inspire children to do their best in the classroom and on the sports field.”

David Martin, Headteacher at Ghyll Royd School, said: “As big supporters of both outdoor learning and Physical Education, the Premier Stars equipment will prove beneficial to our children’s love and enthusiasm to sport.

“We have been given a range of exciting equipment to incorporate skill, logic, teambuilding and fun into our lessons. Thank you Premier Stars!”
