Sun Safe Resources

Picture 1

We are taking steps to implement a Sun Safe policy and teaching.


The content of which forms part of our duty of care to ensure the health and wellbeing of your child/children during school hours.


This is a voluntary undertaking by the school following an invitation from the Sun Safe Schools (national accreditation scheme), which has been developed by national skin cancer charity 'Skcin', to encourage the necessary culture change regarding attitudes towards sun safety required to combat the soaring rates of skin cancer in the UK.


The good news is that skin cancer is almost entirely preventable and simple steps can be undertaken to ensure that your child’s skin is protected from the sun’s harmful rays. As such, we will be utilising the Sun Safe Schools accreditation scheme to teach all children the importance of sun safety with the fun and engaging teaching resources supplied to us.


Courtesy of the Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal’s bespoke version of the Sun Safe Schools accreditation scheme our school has been selected to take advantage of FREE sunscreen for all pupils. Our wall mounted sun stations with dispensers containing SPF 30, 5 star UVA, broad spectrum sunscreen are installed and ready for use by all pupils. Children will apply the sunscreen themselves before extended periods of time outdoors such as lunch breaks when UV penetration is at its peak. Should you wish to patch test a sample of the sunscreen on your child, samples can be trialed by contacting the school office.
