St Philip's Catholic Primary School

Fair Trade

St Philip’s is dedicated to making the world a better place and one way we try to do to this is by being a Fair Trade School.


Over the past few months, we have been working hard to increase our evidence and actions regarding Fairtrade.  We are delighted to have received our Fairtrade award this week and will continue to promote and develop our understanding of Fairtrade.


As part of our continued effort to be a 'Fair Active School', we were delighted to be visited by Vidya Shilp Academy all the way from Bangalore in India. VSA was the first Fair Trade school in India.  It was wonderful to share ideas on how we can commit to spreading awareness about sustainability and upholding the principles of fair trade, as part of our curriculum.  The children and students were able to gain ideas from each other and try out the planned activities that they had brought with them.


Here is a list of websites for parents and carers to help support to understanding of Fair Trade:
