Premier League Primary Stars

Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

Available to every primary school in England and Wales, it inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field. Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free to download activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, fun assemblies and exclusive videos.

There are further extra special opportunities for schools that register, such as a visit from the the Premier League Trophy for a day.

Archibald’s Primary School in Middlesbrough is one such winner from this draw, and the event was supported by our very own Roary the mascot, who was challenged to games of Table Tennis.

Adding value to this programme is the contribution that Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation makes by offering local schools the opportunity to draft in professional coaching from our team of experts who work with teachers to deliver fun, educational PE & Sport sessions.

A squad of highly qualified and motivated coaches with many years’ experience of working in primary schools with all ages of children including those with special needs.

The programme provided by the Foundation also allows partner schools to enter local football competitions with the opportunity to progress to national events organised by the Premier League. The Foundation has a direct connection with Middlesbrough Football Club’s Academy and scouts regularly attend football tournaments to identify new and progressive talented young people, and local events are regularly held at the prestigious training ground where it is possible to meet the first team players.

Our emphasis is very much on quality rather than quantity and our competitively priced programmes aim to educate and enthuse both pupils and staff. These are the moments children will cherish throughout their school life and as our programmes are linked to curriculum studies, we find that children’s ability to learn increases as they become more confident.

All schools that sign up to the Primary Stars website will receive a free values incentive pack with stickers and certificates to reward positive behaviour and achievements. For those who wish to enhance their offer through a programme that teaches children to work hard and never give up on their goals, give us a call or email for a free appraisal of your current and future needs and to see how we can assist.

Walk from Rockliffe to the Riverside

A local photographer from Teesside is hoping to raise money for MFC Foundation by walking from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium on Wednesday 26th August 2020.

Tom Banks owner of Banks Photo recently worked for MFC Foundation and was so amazed by the inspiring work the Foundation deliver across Teesside he decided he wanted to help support them.

Tom plans to walk the 25 mile route from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium and raise much needed funds for MFC Foundation.

Tom who is a keen walker said: “I was asked by MFC Foundation prior to lockdown to take some photos of several projects that they were delivering within the local communities. I was totally amazed to see the joy in the faces of the participants and it made me think that I wanted to do something to help.” He continued “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on all charities so I decided I would try to do my bit and fundraise for MFC Foundation. As a keen walker I decided that I would walk from Rockliffe Hall to the Riverside Stadium to help the Foundation continue their inspiring work across Teesside.”

Andrew Buckley – Business Development Manager for MFC Foundation said: “Tom worked for us earlier in the year and was overwhelmed by some of our projects we are continuing to deliver throughout this pandemic.” He continued “As a LOCAL charity we are always grateful for any donations and help with our fundraising work so we are very happy to support Tom with his up and coming sponsored walk.”
