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
