Stay Sun Safe

North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership continues to campaign for Sun Awareness and following our previous support of the Melanoma Fund we are pleased to be Sun Protection Accredited for 2021 as part of the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code.

The campaign was designed to tackle melanoma, one of the UK’s most common cancers in young people, by helping to develop and support sun protection practices for all those who work outdoors with children.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase everyone’s risk of melanoma by 80%.  With 86% of melanomas attributed to excessive sun exposure, and levels of melanoma rising in the UK, sun protection habits need to change.

To encourage this change, North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership has a Sun Protection Policy which is promoted and endorsed by our team at all our outdoor events, as well as through our direct support of PE and Sport in Schools.

Young people and families can also try the Sun-Sorted! Quiz - 24 multiple choice questions, with amazing facts about the sun, their skin, and their environment.
