A Fairtrade school is committed to Fairtrade, sells and uses Fairtrade products as far as it can, and raises awareness of Fairtrade in the school and local community.

Fairtrade initiative is a great way of promoting the ethical and social awareness of your school and it can be easily be linked to PHSE, Global Perspectives, CAS, Enviroment Education, and Climate Education. 

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.
