Dear Parent / Carer / School
Holiday activities and food programme – Summer 2021
Durham County Council has received central government funding to deliver a series of sports and swimming camps with food programmes FREE throughout County Durham this summer.
As a result of the holiday activities with food programme funding we want children who attend this provision to:
· Eat more healthily over the school holidays
· Be more active during the school holidays
· Take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character, and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment.
Our sports camps are available for your child / children FREE of charge and will include a packed lunch including a freshly made sandwich, fruit, water, and a snack. The dates and times are below for your area:
Teesdale Leisure Centre, DL12 8DS
Camp: every day for 4 days from Monday 26th July to Thursday 29th July
Times: 10am to 2pm each day
Ages: 10 to 11 years old (school year group 5 & 6)
You can book for a full 4 days or individual days by following the below instructions:
To book a place please ring Teesdale Leisure Centre Reception on 03000 260862
Please inform us or any food allergies when you make the booking. We expect the camps to be extremely busy so please inform us if you no longer require the space. This camp also has a limit of 25 places because of pool space available so book early to avoid disappointment.
The camps will be fun and energetic, including a mixture of swimming lesson top up session, swimming free time, mixed sports and games in the sports hall.
10am swimming lesson (to top up lost time schools have had for swimming this year)
11am free swim time
12.30 – 2pm mixed sports activity and games
School will be open as normal on Monday morning but if your child is a football fan and is likely to be staying up until after 11pm on Sunday, then we have planned a relaxed start to allow them to have a little bit of extra time in bed. We will be here at the normal time but registers will stay open until 10.00am and children will not be marked late as long as they are in by 10am.
They can also come to school in their football kits or anything red and white and who knows? If England win and it doesn’t rain there might be another sing along on the yard which will be joined this time by our lovely key stage 1 children who we’ve missed so much this week.
This is a one-off opportunity, it’s 55 years since England reached a major football final and it’s been a hard year, so I think everyone deserves to celebrate.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS OPTIONAL, WRAPAROUND AND EVERYTHING ELSE WILL RUN AS NORMAL AND WE WILL BE HERE AT THE NORMAL TIME.

Please read the below letter written by Oliver and Jack in Year 6
On the 30th of June 2021 the Year 6 leavers were privileged to have the fantastic experience of a day at Planet Leisure. The activities we took part in included Bowling and Laser Quest. This treat was to celebrate Year 6’s time in Cockfield Primary school.
Year 6 enjoyed a meal at dinner time and we all really enjoyed not just the activities but also the food! We all had an excellent time and had a great laugh.
During Laser Quest we all enjoyed the activity and the teachers joined in too! It was our chance to target our teachers with our laser guns (only a couple of hundred times).
Thankyou Cockfield Primary School for all the amazing memories and opportunities!
For parents of children in class 2 only
If your child has received a message to say they have been identified as being in close contact with a positive covid case please read the attached letter.
