Sun Safety



Parklands Infant and Nursery School has taken part in the Sun Safe Schools national accreditation scheme - the content of which forms part of our duty of care to ensure the health and wellbeing of children during school hours. The scheme has been developed by the national skin cancer charity 'Skcin', to assist primary schools in implementing a successful Sun Safety Policy whilst encouraging schools and parents to work together to increase knowledge, influence behaviour and prevent skin cancer.


As part of the Sun Safe scheme, we encourage our children to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP, SEEK and SLIDE.


SLIP on a t-shirt when playing outside in the sun.

SLOP on some sunscreen.

SLAP a hat on to your head.

SEEK some shade to play in.

SLIDE on a pair of sunglasses.
