School Games At Home Friday Afternoon Challenge



We will be setting challenges through the School Games Portal for your child to complete at home on a Friday afternoon.


Access code: clifton (which is not case sensitive). Enter this and you should be taken to select an account type, which is of course parent.


Once you have selected 'parent' you should then be able to fill in all their details and submit. Just a few points to note however:





    • Ensure that the Password  entered in both boxes is the same.





    • If an individual already registered in the summer with a specific email, they will not be able to create a new account with that email. This is also a common error.





    • Please make sure that if you have registered an account that you go to 'log in'. 





    • In the school name box when you start to type St Anne's, the school should automatically appear, so make sure you click on this, rather than type the whole school name out as the system is a bit sensitive to this.
