Can I please remind Parent/Carers to put sun cream on pupils before sending them to school. Please ensure that your child brings a bottle of water every day and wears a hat as necessary. Water is available for children during the school day although water bottles help.
Health Matters – Sun Protection.
Parents should apply sun protection cream to exposed body parts. Although it is not possible to allow pupils to bring such creams to school, there are now products on the market which give protection for the whole of the school day. The school will also encourage the children to sit in the shade out of direct sunlight for part of the lunch break.
Shaded areas are provided and children are encouraged to use these areas rather than being in the sun for the whole play time!
