Pupils and staff at St Mary’s Community Primary School in Beetley are celebrating after being awarded a Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment pack.

Footballs, goals, training bibs and a variety of additional training equipment were given to the school in a scheme delivered by the Football Foundation.

They will be used in PE lessons and during lunchtime and afterschool clubs, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.

Also available is a free downloadable suite of resources for teachers across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, maths, PE and PSHE.

Nicola Utting, PE specialist at the school, said: “Children and staff were so delighted to receive this equipment. Our children love football and have been making do with old and worn resources. This has injected a new lease of life and greater excitement throughout the school to our sports uptake, particularly football.”
