THERE was no dissent when a World Cup referee stopped by at a local school.

Howard Webb, who took charge of the 2010 World Cup Final, was at Beech Hill Primary School, Pellon, Halifax, to launch a new website about showing respect. The Get On With The Game site aims to promote good citizenship in schools and Beech Hill head teacher Jon Moss has played a key role in setting it up.

He is a member of the Premier League’s Select Group officials and helped promote the website containing information on decision making and conflict resolution.

The site is curriculum-based, using themes from the football pitch.

Mr Moss said: “There are many advantages to me as a teacher using Premier League football to engage children. It is a world they are aware of, understand and want to emulate.”
