Sun Safety!

30th June, 2019

The School Council met with Mrs Parr last week to propose a few outdoor criteria for the sunny days ahead.

They proposed:

  • Children wear a named hat outside, or a spare hat from the box in school
  • Remind children to drink lots of water
  • Put sunscreen on before you come to school
  • Please don’t wear sunglasses as they may get broken and could be dangerous
  • Could we possibly have the gazebos out for shade when it is hot? Reading/drawing area
  • MDSA’s to have a water jug and cups especially on the field
  • Could we have packed lunches out side?
  • Litter picking monitors in each class, changed weekly, to wear a green band or high viz jacket and make sure the playground and field are tidy every Friday
  • Could we possibly have the circus skills box outside in a coned off area?

Mrs Parr was very impressed with the School Councils ideas and has passed on these proposals to Mrs Griffin and the MDSA’s
