Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation are honoured to confirm that they will be once again be working in schools in Hartlepool as part of the Premier League Primary Stars project for 2019/20 and 2020/21.

Premier League Primary Stars is available to every primary school in England and Wales. It aims to inspire girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

As an education programme, it enthuses young learners by connecting learning to the real world of sport.

They will each contribute to a donation of £1.2m a year over this period.  This allows the Trust is to help National League member clubs develop their community programmes.

Last year HUCSF worked with 8 schools in the town and surrounding area: Ward Jackson, Throston, Grange, Rift House, West View, West Park, Pentland and Jesmond Gardens.

During the course of the project we work with teachers to support their delivery and develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in the subject.

The emphasis is on empowering the teacher, to allow for sustainable improves in the school’s delivery of high-quality PE and school sport post project.

The objectives of the scheme are to:

  • Enhance the knowledge, skills and confidence of teachers in order to improve the delivery of PE and school sport
  • Increase children’s enjoyment, participation and skills in competitive and non-competitive sports and physical activity needed to achieve their goals.
  • Enhance children’s interest, understanding and confidence in English and maths
  • Support young people into further participation pathways in sport
