Theo helps launch school campaign

Theo Walcott has helped the Premier League launch an ambitious new education programme - which will use the power of football to inspire Primary School children across the country.

Premier League Primary Stars aims to connect with 10,000 primary schools by 2019, offering football related Maths, English PE and PSHE resources to help children get excited about their learning.

Arsenal in the Community, who currently deliver a range of sports and education projects in 75 local primary schools around Emirates Stadium, will be helping to deliver the programme locally.

Theo said: "As a dad of two boys, I was very keen to support the Premier League’s Primary Stars community programme. I hope this programme can have a very positive influence on the education of young children across the country."
