Premier Showdown offers inclusive opportunities to ‘inspire’ and ‘engage’ students in dance and the arts with the opportunity to feel success through competition. The programme aims to increase child confidence and to develop the ability to win and lose respectfully. Premier Showdown prepares children for competition by introducing rules, skills and confidence building prior to the event which gives children the ability to learn and compete ethically.
We are aware that some children do not feel wholly comfortable working as a team, therefore we have opportunities for children to compete individually as well as part of a team making this competition inclusive for all.
Premier Showdown liaises with local PE subject leaders and head teachers, helping select and prepare teams for inter-school competitions. Premier Showdown also meets the needs of Ofsted and Sport Premium that suggest more emphasis should be placed on competition.
