Waiting List Policy
Places are offered by priority of the date of joining the waiting list, with the following exceptions:
- Children of current or new leaders are given priority because we depend heavily on parent volunteers for our leadership teams.
- A young person already in scouting and moving home into the area from another scout district will be considered for a place.
- Those moving up through the Group (from Beavers to Cubs, and Cubs to Scouts) are offered places ahead of those on the waiting list.
We contact parents (by phone or email) if a space becomes available, approximately half a term before their child is due to start.
Our waiting lists often exceed the number of spaces available and so we are not always able to offer a place. A child that does not obtain a place in one section will be held our waiting list for the next age group. There is no need to reapply for each section.
If you wish to join our waiting list, please fill in the Join Us form.
If you have registered your child on the waiting list for 1st Harefield and you do not hear from us, please contact us via the our Contact Us page.
1st Harefield Scout Group operate in accordance with the key policies of the Scout Association. These policies are:
- Fundamentals of Scouting
- Religious policy
- Equal opportunities
- Child protection
Details of these policies can be found on the Scout Association website.
