  20. 20. Question 5 – Inter School <ul><li>Easy set-up in/outdoor comp any space </li></ul><ul><li>As teams can be made up of range of ability/gender/age etc there is not just an eligible few who can represent school </li></ul><ul><li>Short easy transferable rules etc lends itself to easily sustainable league or cup format </li></ul>
  21. 21. Question 6 – Activities offered <ul><li>Simple nature of sport means many schools will already have required equipment in the stores </li></ul><ul><li>Average number sports across partnership is 15 by adding CB equates to an instant 7% raise in activities offered in PESSCL data. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Question 7 – Club Links <ul><li>Intention to introduce a CB Community club to local areas with high up-take in schools </li></ul><ul><li>Being well practice in School/Club links through work , CB will have easy links to increasing each school club link by 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Average across School Sport Partnership is 6 clubs therefore CB would instigate a 17% increase in schools PESSCL data </li></ul>
  23. 23. Question 8 – Community Club Participation <ul><li>Over partnership score is 41% of pupils, this equates to 6600 children across Sth Northants alone who do NOT attend an after school club </li></ul><ul><li>Increased intra/inter school participation, CB will start to chip away at these figures . Being as though the pupils who are missing out on PSA Target was just over 1500 CB can start to have a positive impact into achieving 100% </li></ul><ul><li>In real terms this would mean CB going into e.g Croughton All Saints School and having to affect 8 children to have a positive impact on their PESSCL data!!!! </li></ul>
  24. 24. Question 10–Leadership/Volunteer <ul><li>Nature of CB allows simple umpire/referee/officiating roles, rotational basis this means each player will be involved in some form of leadership/volunteer role within each game – produces a 100% score for each game of CB that is played </li></ul><ul><li>Add on factor of CB leadership bolt-on into local secondary Sports Leaders courses allows for increased impact into further primaries. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Not just in number of answers but………. <ul><li>CB has an understanding not only of the importance of participation in Physical Activity but also how this participation should be of “high quality” </li></ul><ul><li>CB is dedicated to working towards high quality outcomes with every pupil worked with </li></ul><ul><li>Currently working with local SSCo in order to create framework of high quality outcomes </li></ul>
  26. 26. Skills before sports!!! <ul><li>Although CB is a game in its own right it builds and develops the most important core or “fundamental” skills primary aged children should be concentrating on </li></ul><ul><li>Often a tendency to rush children into playing sport in a formal atmosphere too soon </li></ul><ul><li>CB offers that same competitive atmosphere but children have to use core sending, receiving, marking, intercepting, dodging and running skills broken down into their simplest form which are transferable across a range of sports later in their school career </li></ul>
  27. 27.
