Jason Griffiths named Shrewsbury Town FC’s Premier League Primary Stars ‘Superstar’ as schools programme marks five-year anniversary

Launched in 2017 and available to every primary school in England and Wales, Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to support pupils in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

To celebrate five years of the programme, clubs have nominated a ‘Superstar’ – a young person or teacher who has inspired others through their dedication to the programme, enthusiasm and own personal development.

One person who has benefitted from their involvement in the programme is Jason Griffiths, Year 5 Teacher and PE Co-ordinator at Tenbury COE Primary School, who has been named as a ‘Superstar’ by Adam Jones, Shrewsbury Town Foundation’s Education & Learning Manager (Primary), as part of the programme’s five-year anniversary celebrations.

Jason has been awarded the Superstar award for his commitment to the Primary Stars programme and PE lessons over the last 5 Years. He has embedded a culture at Tenbury Primary Schools for all pupils to engage in PE in a variety of ways, which is clear to see when you step onto the playground. In addition to his commitment to lessons, Jason has developed the school’s facilities with an all-weather running track to allow pupils to perform the daily mile whatever the weather and ultimately help them to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. We’re also honoured to note that Jason is a season ticket holder for Shrewsbury Town FC, as he embodies the club’s and charities values to use sport as a powerful tool to educate and inspire.
