SUN SAFE

Whilst it is lovely to bask in this lovely sunshine this is also an opportunity to remind parents of our Sun Safe policy and procedures. At school, we reduce the lunch time so the last 15 minutes are ‘Cool Down time’. All children are required to sit in the shaded areas of the field and use this time to go to the toilet, fill up water bottles and ‘cool down’ before the afternoon sessions. Children have access to water fountains outside. Many of our PE lessons are in the afternoon, so in the heat teacher’s will plan to have frequent ‘cool down’ breaks, all children can access water and shade or in some instances alternative activities (but this is left to the teacher’s discretion, once the outside temperature and UV levels are determined). It would help your child in school if could ensure you have applied sunscreen (at least SPF30+) before they come to school but also to keep in school a named bottle of sunscreen that they can re-apply if necessary, a named wide brimmed hat and a named re-usable water bottle. It is recommended that sunscreen is applied before school but that it may need to be re-applied during the day as children are often outside during peak UV times. I know that many children suffer from allergies or hayfever at this time of year, so please can we ask that you sign in any ‘emergency’ medication with the school office. We can then administer medication should your child start to suffer during the school day.
