Becoming a Fairtrade School means joining a worldwide movement – a movement where young people learn that, whatever their age, they have the power to make a difference in the world.
It offers a great opportunity to look at global issues such as where our food comes from and how we are connected to people around the world. Students can also learn a range of skills, from teamwork and co-operation to persuasive writing to running a stall or tuck shop.
We are working towards
Fair Aware – Fair Aware is the first Fairtrade Schools Award and is about finding out where your school is in terms of understanding Fairtrade and using Fairtrade products.
Fair Active – After learning about Fairtrade for your first award, you can move onto FairActive and start taking action for Fairtrade.
Fair Achiever – At this point the school has fully embedded Fairtrade into their daily life and work to raise awareness of Fairtrade in their local community.
