Sun care

During warmer weather the school welcomes children in the summer school uniform. In addition to this the school would recommend

  • children wear a named sun hat, which will shade their face and neck.
  • cover exposed skin with a sunscreen cream, which will last all day. The NHS suggest such sun creams are effective against UVA and UVB and are of adequate protection factor. 
  • children drink water regularly. Children may bring in a named water bottle, which may be re filled during the day. 

The school will encourage children to play in the shade and provide parasols for the play ground.
