Sun Safe Schools National Accreditation Scheme

Developed by national skin cancer charity, Skcin, the Sun Safe Schools national accreditation scheme is the UK’s most comprehensive FREE resource to assist primary schools in; creating a suitable sun safety policy; communicating with parents to raise awareness and gain support from the wider school community; and educating pupils on the importance of sun safety, to influence behaviour and prevent skin cancer.
