St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

We are SO excited to be welcoming all our children back next Monday 8th March! I am sure you are too! Please check the message in the left column of the page below for information on school re-opening to all children. Please remember the one way system will still be in place as will social distancing. Power on this week knowing the end to online learning is well in sight now! Stay safe! Mrs Hodges

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we want staff and pupils to enjoy the sun safely.


We will work with staff, pupils and parents to achieve this through:



  • Children will be told during an assembly ‘How to be Sun safe’ and given reminders
  • Parents/carers are reminded how to keep their child safe in newsletters



  • The school playground has shade provided by the school building and by some trees
  • Children will be reminded to spend some time in the shade during lunchtime play



  • Staff will use their professional judgement as to whether the children need to be brought in to the building for shade/cooler environment



  • Children will be encouraged to wear sun hats when appropriate



  • Parents/carers are asked to ensure that their children are protected by long lasting sunscreen each day before they arrive at school and are protected by appropriate clothing
  • Staff will have sunscreen in school that they will endeavour to administer if the need arises
  • The use of sunscreen will be encouraged if the children are to spend any length of time outside on hot days e.g. on school trips



  • All pupils are asked to bring water bottles to school every day
  • Fresh drinking water is always available
