Sun Safety and Sun Safe Schools


As a school community we are going to be working towards becoming a Sun Safe School. We are very aware of the importance of keeping children safe in the sun and protecting their health. We will be introducing a number of initiatives during the Summer term to keep our children safe in the sun, whilst developing their understanding of why this is important.

What is the Sun Safe Accreditation Scheme? 

The Sun Safe Accreditation Scheme has been developed by the national skin cancer charity; Skcin.  Their mission, via Sun Safe Schools, is to assist primary schools in their duty of care to provide a sun safe environment and to educate children on the importance of sun safety so they can protect themselves. With children spending almost half their childhood at school, where they are outdoors every day during peak UV hours (11am-3pm), it’s imperative to ensure that they are adequately protected from UV and understand the importance of enjoying the sun safely.

UV Watch: Week beginning Monday 13th May

Sun Hats and Water Bottles

As part of our schools Sun Safe Policy we would like all children to have a sun hat and water bottle in school every day. This way we can teach the children good habits that they can continue throughout their lives.

Sun hats that protect both their face and neck, and have been recommended by Sun Safe Schools, are available to buy from school if you wish to purchase one. These will be £3.00 and can be ordered by returning order forms that are availible both on this page and from the school office.
