Fairtrade Fortnight 2019 is between Monday 25th Feb and Sunday 10th March. Plans are already underway to ensure this years events are as thought provoking and pertinent as last years! We aim to carry out another Fairtrade event, similar to last year where the children get dressed up and complete Fairtrade activities in classes, as well as Key Stage events in the hall.
8th March - Fairtrade Community Event
We’ve had a fabulous Fairtrade Fortnight at Sandal. The children have participated in a wide-range of curriculum enriching activities and ended on a high with the Fairtrade Community Cafe. Families were invited into school for a ‘farmer’s break’ with the children, and plenty of cake, chocolate and other treats were enjoyed! A fantastic £1223.00 was raised.
Here are a few photos of children applying their map skills using the inflatable globes to identify where popular fairtrade foods are grown. We learned about the impact this has on farmers that rely on the foods for their livelihoods.

We have worked extremely hard over the last academic year to achieve the Fairachiever Award. We have thoroughly enjoyed working towards this award and have prioritised our curriculum events to build our portfolio of evidence in order to achieve this. Here are some photos of the events and work completed in school in celebration of our Fairachiever Award.
As part of our commitment to Fairtrade across the curriculum, we purchased Fairtrade footballs, sports bibs and aprons with funds raised from our Fairtrade breakfast cafes.
