Be certain with Soltan

We at Soltan want to help young people start sun safe habits that last a lifetime. Therefore, in 2015 we launched Soltan Sun Ready Schools – a free educational programme designed to help young people stay sun safe and enjoy the great outdoors.


Boots Soltan Sun Ready is designed to teach children simple ways to stay safe in the sun, and protect them from sunburn and the risks of melanoma.

With expert advice and loads of fun ideas for families, get everyone outdoors and having fun! From discovering your local bike trail, to picking blackberries – there’s something for everyone!


We have free curriculum-linked teaching resources for 5-14 year olds including Science, PSHE, English and Geography activities, lesson plans, films, playground activities and homework exercises. These will help your students stay sun safe and enjoy the outdoors.


This year, we have our Sun Ready Campaign Challenge to empower pupils aged 4-11 to spread the word about the importance of sun safety by creating a poster campaign to encourage others to stay safe. The first 100 entries will receive a Soltan Sun Ready Pack filled with goodies to help you stay sun safe, and the overall winners will have their campaign posters displayed in a local Boots store for the whole community to see! The competition will open on 29th April and close on 14th June. Go to the Sun Ready Schools website for more information.
