 How do I sign up?

To sign up for an activity, students will first need to sign into their @Haverfordwesthigh.co.uk  gmail account. Students can acquire their gmail account details from their Form Tutors, then visit gmail.com to sign in. Once students have signed in, they can click on the link below that requires students name, form, class, and parent contact phone number. Remember that parent consent must be sought to attend clubs. 

Numbers of students are limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Once signed up, students will receive a confirmation email or a message to say the application has been successful. Assume that you have a place unless you are contacted by the school. If an activity does not appear on the form, this means that all places have been taken for this half term. Each half term the registers will refresh and students can sign up for something else. If students would like to continue with the same activity, they may. However, if the activity is oversubscribed, students may be asked to choose something else. 

 

What commitment am I making by signing up?

Signing up means that students are committed to attend the chosen activity for the full half term. For example, if they have chosen an Art activity, they must attend Art each Friday during that half term. Students are not permitted to swap activities without seeking permission from Mrs A Gardner. Students that select activities taking place on week 1 only, should speak to Mrs Gardner if they would like to sign up for another activity during week 2.  Ms Gardner is based in Main Reception. 

We have a duty to make sure everyone is safe and accounted for at school – as a result, a weekly register will be taken by the providers. If students can’t attend a session, the usual attendance procedures apply. Alternatively parents could email contactus@haverfordwesthigh.co.uk.   This way, we will know where students are and that they are safe if they have not attended the planned activity. Students will need to make their own arrangements home at 3:15.
