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.
You can also watch coverage of the 2014 launch on BBC Newsround.
Schools and libraries which took part in the 2014/2015 season are shown on this map.
PLRS participants are members of our Network: access amazing literacy resources, support and planning tools.
