More than half of UK parents believe sunglasses should become an official part of school uniform, a study has found.
A study of 1,000 parents with children aged 4-12 found 72 percent worried about protecting their child’s eyes from the sun.
However, only three in 10 sent their child to school with sunglasses every time it was sunny.
One-quarter even said their child was forbidden by their school from wearing sunglasses on school grounds.
A spokesperson for Monkey Monkey Sunglasses, which commissioned the study, said: "Parents are consistently telling us that their children are more likely to wear sunglasses on holiday or to leisure activities than at school."
"We just want parents to be aware that the midday and afternoon sun can be equally strong in the school playground, or on the walk home from school, as it is on the beach."
