Hot Weather Precautions – Information for Parents
In today’s extremely hot weather conditions we have taken some additional precautions in order to keep the children safe. At lunchtime no toys/balls were put out so as to discourage the children from running around in the heat. The children were instead provided with a choice of shaded areas to sit in and storybooks were provided for the children to sit quietly and read with friends. Access to water has been provided throughout the day (including the duration of the lunch break) and children have been regularly encouraged by adults to go and help themselves to a drink.
During this extremely warm spell, we will assess the weather each day and may shorten the lunch break on some days to prevent the children from spending too much time in the sun.
Please can I remind all parents to provide a sunhat for their child and to apply sun cream to their child before school. Please only send sun cream in to school if your child is able to apply it themselves as staff are unable to re-apply it throughout the day. Please also remind your child not to share their sun cream with other children as this may potentially cause allergic reactions.
