Fairtrade at Home

We have some new features on our website to help you with home learning! All of our learning resources in our Fairtrade School Resource Library are free to download. Please share with anyone who might find these resources useful, whether it be parents, students or teachers.

NEW! Home Learning Challenges

Enjoy our films as a family and complete the accompanying ‘Home Learning Challenges’ for some educational fun! From Fairtrade fashion designing to writing Fairtrade recipe books, we’ve got something for everyone…

Each challenge include eight fun learning ideas for children to try at home. These activities are flexible, open-ended and are designed to keep young minds engaged whilst developing key skills. Keep popping back to the site as we will be adding more resources next week!

NEW! Home Learning filter

Find these resources by using the new ‘Home Learning‘ filter in our resource library. This will help you find all the resources that are easy to use at home, including films, activities and games.

Although we cannot be together in schools right now, we can still learn about Fairtrade together at home. Get in touch to tell us about your activities via email (schools@fairtrade.org.uk) or Twitter. Please tag @FairtradeUKEd and use the hashtag #FairtradeTogether on social media posts!

NEW! FairAware Award from home 

We’ve made some amendments to the FairAware Award application process so your school can achieve the award from the comforts of your own home. To achieve a FairAware Award, simply register your school, complete a Fairtrade audit and get one year group to take part in a Fairtrade Home Learning Challenge!

The team are here to support you with your award, so if you have any questions about the process, you can get in touch with us at schools@fairtrade.org.uk.

Wishing you all the best,

Claire, Jo, Joe & Shannon
