Last year we successfully completed all stages of the Sun Safe Schools programme.
The Sun Safe Schools Accreditation Scheme has been developed by national skin cancer charity; Skcin. The key objective of the charity is to prevent skin cancer through education, promote early detection and reduce the soaring incidence rates in the UK. Our mission via Sun Safe Schools is to assist primary schools in their duty of care to provide a sun safe environment and to educate children on the importance of sun safety, to influence behaviour and ultimately, save lives.
In order to renew our accreditation (which we have to do annually) we are required to share the policy and a pre-written letter with parents. Some parents feedback last year that they found the letter condescending. We apologise if you feel this way, but in order to gain the accreditation we have to use the pre-written letter as-is.
The letter, policy and factsheet can be found here:
