by | Sep 23, 2020

Our Affiliate Skcin have secured sun safe teachings for the national curriculum for all primary schools.


Skcin have been lobbying the UK government and campaigning with the Department for Education for the past 5 years. As a result, from September 2020, sun safe teachings are mandatory in primary schools due to new PSHE guidelines. Through their Sun Safe Schools initiative, Skcin have educated over 700,000 pupils.

Skcin have always believed the route to combat the rising skin cancer statistics in the UK has been to evoke cultural behaviour change and to do this, we need to start with the next generation and embed the seeds of sun safety at an early age.”


As a charity, Skcin’s aim is to prevent skin cancer through education, promote early detection and reduce the soaring incidence rates within the UK. The mission of Sun Safe Schools is to assist primary schools in their duty of care to provide a sun safe environment, as well as to educate children on the importance of sun safety, to influence behaviour and ultimately save lives.
