Adverse Weather

Sun Safety

Staff are aware of the danger of over exposure to the sun and take appropriate action in hot weather.  Children are encouraged to wear protective hats at playtimes.  Drinking fountains are accessible to children at all times and they are also encouraged to bring a bottle of water into school to drink during the day.

It should be noted that the application of sun creams is not the responsibility of school staff and if children bring sun cream to school they must be able to apply this independently.  However, the majority of sun creams are effective for a minimum of 4 hours and some up to 6 hours.  If applied before school, it should not therefore be necessary to re-apply before the end of the school day.

Cold Weather

Please ensure your child comes to school wearing a warm coat during the cold months of the year and suitable footwear.  If you child wears boots to school please ensure they have school shoes to change in to.  Staff are aware of the danger of extreme cold weather and take appropriate action.
