    Types of educational signage

    Educational signage typically falls into four main categories:

    1. An exterior welcome sign
      This is an essential school sign and one that needs to be done well. It’s the first thing that your students, staff, and visitors will see when they enter the establishment – and, as such, it’s your opportunity to promote your brand and ethos and make the best possible first impression.
    2. Directional signs
      Directional signage is also a worthwhile investment. External signs can be used to direct parents and pupils to drop-off areas and point visitors towards the main entrance, whilst internal directional signs are an easy way to improve navigation and mark out key locations throughout the school.
    3. Health and safety notices
      With safeguarding more important than ever before, clear health and safety signs are an absolute essential. These are typically used across all school areas (e.g. classrooms, canteens, playgrounds etc.) and can help to direct staff and pupils towards emergency exits and fire assembly points.
    4. Motivational signs
      School signs can also be installed to encourage pupils and promote positive behaviour. This type of signage can either be creative or educational and some of our favourite ideas include:

      • wall graphics with inspirational quotes
      • wall graphics with educational maps of the world
      • glass manifestations with artistic designs
      • bold signs with the school’s key values
      • wall graphics that celebrate success or foster teamwork
      • glass manifestations that promote healthy eating

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why is school signage important?

    In the past, signage in schools has often been an afterthought. Yes, a little effort may have been put into the main entrance sign – but other elements were typically added in an ad-hoc fashion. As a result, in most cases, school signs have become confusing, disjointed and uninspiring.

    It’s worth taking the time to rectify this. High-quality and well-designed educational signage comes hand-in-hand with a wide range of benefits. Not only does it create a sense of professionalism for your school, but it also makes an excellent first impression for visitors and can motivate pupils to learn. On a practical level, directional signs can help to improve navigation around the school premises and health and safety signs are an easy way to meet strict safeguarding regulations.
