SunSmart school policy guidelines
The NICE guidelines for skin cancer prevention recommend that Head Teachers should take action to protect children from over-exposure to UV rays. The guidelines recommend that schools “develop, implement and monitor a specially tailored policy to ensure people are protected as much as possible”.
Our guidelines can help you to create a Sun Protection Policy tailored to the needs of your school:
Primary school teaching resources
Designed by teachers to help you run a SunSmart assembly
Designed by teachers to meet Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum requirements
Secondary school resources
The Teenage Cancer Trust have developed a teaching pack to help create interesting and engaging lessons around the topic of sun safety.
