DRESS CODE REQUIREMENTS
Sun Protection Policy
Overexposure to the sun during childhood and adolescence is an important contributing factor to the development of skin cancer in later life. As students are at school during times of peak ultraviolet (UV) radiation, school can play a major role in creating a supportive environment that minimises exposure and encourages sun protective behaviours.
Our Sun Protection policy has been developed to ensure that all students, staff, parents and visitors attending Swan View Primary School are protected from skin damage caused by harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. This policy is to be implemented when the forecast average monthly index in our area is 3 or above (available from www.bom.gov.au). The sun protection practices outlined in this policy will be applied to all school activities, including sports carnivals, excursions and camps. The policy has been developed in consultation with the whole school community.
