About Premier League Reading Stars

Premier League Reading Stars is part of the free Premier League Primary Stars offer to all primary schools* in England and Wales. Free PE and PSHE Enterprise resources can now be downloaded from with English, Maths and Enterprise resources to follow. The National Literacy Trust has created the English resources and these will be available to download from February 2017.

Here’s what the English offer will look like – a strike-partnership of two great FREE offers, and you are welcome to deliver both: 

  1. Premier League Reading Stars: a 10 week literacy intervention proven to raise reading levels for targeted under-achieving Y5/6 pupils. You will be able to download teacher guides, delivery notes, pupil worksheets, videos, posters and other supporting resources. Free training on how to deliver the programme will be available, and many Premier League, and Football League, clubs will be trained to deliver the programme in local schools.
  2. Premier League Primary Stars English Packs: a selection of six ‘English Packs’ for KS1 & KS2 pupils. These include themed lesson plans designed to motivate children with a range of interests. They also include inspirational videos and worksheets, teacher guides and games to help consolidate learning.

To receive further information on these offers, club delivery and PLRS training please register on the Premier League Primary Stars website.

The National Literacy Trust is now developing new sports-themed offers for schools. Further information will be available in shortly. If you would like to be notified when these programmes are available please complete our Expression of Interest form
