Fairtrade

This year we’ve been looking at how we can introduce Fairtrade products into our school. It isn’t simple as the school lunches are provided by a company and snacks are purchased in bulk from a local supermarket. So we surveyed staff to find out if we can make changes to shared supplies of tea, coffee and sugar to start with. Results and comments are below. The overwhelming opinion was YES, staff do want to use Fairtrade products, this small change for us as a school will benefit others. We teach our pupils about being global consumers, fair prices for farmers and international trade relationships so we can now be part of this, great news!
