Sun Safety

In the summer term, we kindly ask that all parents and carers at Grimsargh St Michael’s Primary School help their children to apply sun-cream before coming to school.

This is an important part of safety each morning; it will show the children how to safely apply cream and will ensure that children are safe to participate in outdoor activities in the morning.

It is also vitally important that our children bring a water bottle to school and an appropriate summer hat or cap to wear when learning or playing outside during warmer weather.


Children are invited to bring a named bottle of sun-cream which they must hand to their class teacher. Children will have the opportunity to apply cream at midday before their lunch/going out to play.

Please do not send your child to school with a brand of sun-cream that they have not used before.

Children will be asked not to share sun-cream with their friends/peers.

Please show your child how to apply sun-cream safety (particularly around the face). We request that parents only supply roll on or squeezy bottles of sun-cream as opposed to spray bottles.

We will support the children in reception class and key stage one with applying their sun- cream.

Thank you for your support with this matter.
