Being a Fairtrade School
We believe it is really important to support those around the world who are less fortunate and to ensure that our children are educated in how they can make a difference in the world.
We are working towards renewing Fairtrade School status. 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.
