Maidenbower Junior School is a Fairtrade school

We have worked hard over the past year and a half to incorporate Fairtrade into our school life. We have a Fairtrade committee that is made up of children and adults and we are committed to using Fairtrade products in school where ever and whenever we can, such as for ‘Fruity Friday’ and having Fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar available in the staff room. Our children learn about Fairtrade issues, especially in Years 4 and 6 where Fairtrade is linked to our topics. Our school is committed to promoting and taking action for Fairtrade and will continue to hold exciting Fairtrade events that are open for everyone in the school to enjoy, as well as anyone from our
local community.

The Judges commented that Maidenbower Junior is ‘an exceptional school with a long history of providing opportunities for young people to learn about plants and the environment.

They also commented that: ‘When combined with well managed and maintained grounds, knowledgeable and confident young people able to converse about their gardening activities together with the opportunities provided to the pupils in caring and responsibility skills through looking after the chickens and pigs, makes for a superb school and a model for others to follow.’
