Dear Parent/Carer

Welcome to the CM Sports Holiday programme, we just wanted to contact you prior to your child attending our holiday camps to cover some key information. In order to deliver this programme, we are proud to be working in partnership with Portsmouth City Council as part of the Holiday Activities and Food programme funded by the Department for Education.

We can’t wait to meet the children over the next few weeks, below we have included a few reminders which will hopefully enhance their experience with:

  • Please ensure children bring warm clothing as much of the day will take place outside
  • Children are welcome to bring a snack and drink for break times
  • We appreciate this could be your child’s first time with us, if you have any information that you think will help, please feel free to get in contact with us

We hope that your children have a fantastic time with us, we will be sending out a further email towards the end of the Easter holidays asking for some brief feedback. We would love to hear what you and your children thought of our courses so that we can make them even better in the future.

Finally, you will notice that we have attached some potentially useful guidance to support children and their families. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of our team at the venue or contact us using the details at the bottom of the page.

Yours sincerely
