About the programme

Our flagship football-themed programme, Premier League Reading Stars (PLRS), is a literacy intervention designed to stimulate primary school children in England and Wales who love football but lack motivation to engage with and achieve in literacy.

The intervention is delivered as a 10-session programme which raises reading levels and motivates participants to enjoy reading and writing. For 2015/16 PLRS provided a range of resources to support schools, libraries, clubs and other settings to harness children's passion for football and create a team of readers. Have a look at the resources that we supplied in the 2015-16 season and watch our short film to see how the programme works.
