Reddish Vale Nursery School
INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/CARERS
Reddish Vale Nursery School are currently working towards gaining our Sun Safe Nurseries Accreditation. The accreditation programme has been developed by national melanoma and skin cancer charity ‘Skcin’ to assist nurseries and pre-school settings in their duty of care to safeguard children against the dangers of Ultraviolet Radiation (UVR) and educate early learners on the importance of sun safety to influence behaviours.
Reddish Vale Nursery School have completed our sun safety policy which is available for parents/carers to download below. This policy outlines our commitment to:
PROTECTION: providing an environment that enables children and staff to stay safe in the sun.
EDUCATION: learning about sun safety to increase knowledge and influence behaviour.
COLLABORATION: working with parents, the management structure and the wider community to reinforce awareness about sun safety.
Our letter about the programme and the support required by parents is also available to download and print below if you have not already received one. This letter contains a parental response form that must be completed by all parents, so that we have a record of your support and proof of our communication. If you have not already supplied us with a response form, please ensure these are completed and returned to us as soon as possible.
We thank you for your valued support.
