Is Your School Sun Safe?

Over-exposure to the sun during childhood can affect the risk of melanoma later in life.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.
