Fair Trade is an international movement which ensures that producers in poor countries get a fair price for their goods (one that covers the cost of production, and guarantees them a living income), decent working terms and conditions, long-term contracts which provide security, support to gain the knowledge and skills that they need to develop their businesses, and increase sales. At Ashdown Primary School we are committed to ensuring that children have a good knowledge of the wider world. In order to ensure this we plan learning that develops children’s understanding of Green Issues, Fair Trade and Charities and how individuals can make a difference. 

Fairtrade Tea 2024

Our Fairtrade Ambassadors did us proud at the Fairtrade Tea. They set up the hall and served delicious Fairtrade biscuits and cakes to parents and grandparents. Many year groups and parents also supported the successful event by baking Fairtrade items either in school or at home. All donation money is currently being counted so watch this space for the grand total that will go straight to the Fairtrade Foundation.  Check out the gallery below for photographs from this fabulous event.

Fairtrade Ambassadors 2024

There are always lots of children who wish to be Fairtrade Ambassadors and we were lucky to receive some really high quality application letters, posters and leaflets.  Decisions have now been made an our new Fairtrade Ambassadors have been announced.

Congratulations to all of these fabulous children.  We are really looking forward to working with you this year.

Fairtrade Week October 2023

This term, we have had our first dedicated ‘Fairtrade’ week where the children have been asking themselves what Fairtrade is.  In lesson time, the children spent time thinking about this through research, role-play and class discussion.  

 The learning will be used to make some displays around the school and we have added some pictures into the gallery on this page so that you can see what we have been up to.
