Sun Protection

We want all children to be able to enjoy the sun safely and to be able to take responsibility for their own sun safety.

We have introduced the following:

  • Children may bring in sunscreen on a disposable wipe (in a plastic bag), which can be kept in their book bag. This will be thrown away after lunchtime. Although parents must show their child how to apply this, teachers will remind children of the need.
  • Children may wear sunglasses. Sunglasses must be labelled with the child’s name.
  • We will not let children stay out in the hot sun for prolonged periods of time (e.g. lunchtime).
  • We will try to timetable our Sports Days for cooler times of the day.
  • The school will endeavour to increase the amount of shade provided.
