In 2013 we are working hard to gain recognition as a Fairtrade School. This means that, as a school, we believe people who produce what we eat and wear should get paid a fair price for their goods and certainly enough to provide for themselves.
We are working together in classes, with our Global Ambassadors and with the local community to achieve this goal and make the world a fairer place. Pupils will have a chance to develop new skills as well as having a positive influence on the school and local community. Also, we get to be part of something that happens at a local, national and international level while taking on responsibilities for their actions
What do we need to do?
In order for us to achieve Fairtrade status we need to reach 5 goals, set out by Fairtrade themselves. The table below sets out the 5 Fairtrade goals and our progress. If you think you can help us in anyway please feel free to contact the school
|Five Fairtrade Goals:||Progress:||Achieved|
