    Fairtrade School Tuck Shop

    With Fairtrade fortnight round the corner, why not join other schools up and down the country with your own fairtrade tuck shop. This is proving a great way in getting kids involved with the running of the shop so that they gain practical skills whilst supporting fairtrade at the same time…a true win-win.

    We have a minimal mark-up policy in place in the hope this will persuade more people to try ethical products and are therefore confident that you will get the possible prices from us.

    Also, we stock a huge range of fairtrade branded products from Café Direct / Clipper for your tea / coffee for the staff room to Divine Chocolate / Traidcraft / Jelly Beans

    How ethically minded is your school

    The Fairtrade Foundation are offering a 'before' and 'after' evaluation to assess the success of the Fairtrade scheme in your school. The purpose of the audit is to see what is happening in your school which entails a questionnaire aimed at assessing the level of Fairtrade awareness and activity among the staff, pupils and members of the local community.

     

    The audit can be done straight away…simply take the questionnaire round to different people in your school for answers.
