Sun Awareness

In warmer weather we are aware of the need for children to stay safe in the sun and we are grateful for your support in the following ways:

  • Ensure that your child brings a drink of water in a labelled bottle to school and encourage them to take regular drinks throughout the day
  • Ensure that your child has a sun hat for school
  • Discuss with your child the need to spend some time in the shade on very sunny days, particularly at lunch times
  • Use sunscreen on your child, e.g. apply a 24hr or 8hr sunscreen to all areas exposed to the sun before they come to school.


We have a policy for Sun Safety and the use of sunscreen in school which we remind parents of each summer. You will find a copy of our policy on the school’s website.
