Sun safety at schools

Download free guidelines

School pupils are often outside on their lunchbreak when the sun is at its strongest. So it is important to offer sun protection in the summer term.

Schools can become more SunSmart by:

  • Taking advantage of our resources for schools 
  • Developing their own school sun protection policy 
  • Downloading our poster, lesson plans and assembly plan for primary schools
  • Incorporating sun protection into the school curriculum 
  • Making sure they provide sufficient shade in the school grounds
  • Warning  parents about the dangers of too much sun
  • Organising a SunSmart sports day
