Over-exposure to the sun during childhood can affect the risk of melanoma later in life.1 Instilling the benefits of being sun safe at school in children is crucial. Educating pupils from a young age is likely to make being safe in the sun a lifetime habit.
Schools and colleges have a responsibility to ensure that children are protected from the harmful UV rays the school day. We believe by providing educational establishments with high-quality sunscreens and the effective resources to learn about UV protection in a fun and informative way, it will ensure that children and young adults are healthier, happier and will have minimised their risk of being diagnosed with skin cancer.
