SunSafe in the primary school 

Cornwall is one of the highest risk areas in the UK so being a SunSafe school with a clear policy on keeping children, staff and the wider school community safe is important. 

A good way of going about being SunSafe is to focus on safety as your Healthy Schools Plus behaviour change project. 

Resources and Activities

There are some excellent resources on the Cancer Research Sun Smart website including lesson plans, assembly ideas and worksheets 

Have a go at our fun sunsafe activities below. 

All activites are designed to remind pupils of the 6 key sunsafe messages:

  • seek shade
  • cover up
  • wear sun cream
  • wear a hat
  • wear sunglasses
  • drink lots of water
  • don't burn!
