An Assembly Committee report is urging the Welsh Government to improve the way it promotes its sun protection guidelines for schools.
The inquiry, by the Children and Young People Committee, found that while guidelines did exist, more needed to be done to promote awareness of the guidelines and to encourage development of individual school policies.
While there is guidance on safeguarding children in education there is nothing that would prevent schools from applying sunscreen.
It is up to individual schools to determine their own policy and procedures in respect of sun safety which ensures the welfare of their pupils."
