In anticipation of warm weather this term (we can but hope!) I would like to remind parents/carers of our sun protection guidance.
Please apply sun cream to your child before they come to school on hot days. The long-lasting protection types are recommended.
However, if your child is prone to burning and you feel they may need an additional application you may send in a labelled bottle of sun cream, which your child should give to their teacher to be kept in school until the end of term.
Your child will be able to apply the cream themselves when needed (usually just before lunchtime) under the supervision of a classroom staff member.
It is also advisable to provide your child with a sun hat and water bottle on hot days. We will encourage children to sit in the shade as required at break-times and drink plenty of water.
Pupils will also be taught the importance of sun safety during PSHe lessons.
