Why your school’s signage is important….
You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression – a saying not just relevant for professionals, but equally important for schools, their students and staff.
Every organisation needs good signage and academic establishments, whether it is a primary school, secondary, Sixth Form or further educational facility, is no different.
When a potential student visits for the first time, what does your signage say about your school? Are you creating the right environment for visitors, students and staff? Are the directions to the reception area and different departments clearly marked? Do people know where to park? Do visitors feel confident and relaxed trying to find where they need to go? Are you creating the right first impression?
How your school is perceived is extremely important to its identity and reputation. Just as you won’t want your students looking and behaving in way that has an adverse effect on your school, signage that looks tired or has incorrect information can damage the reputation you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Although, we appreciate the educational landscape is always changing, the change in Suffolk, has been considerable, as primary schools and secondary schools now take additional years. Middle Schools have closed and academy chains have replaced LEA responsibility. No longer can schools ignore the importance of their appearance and how they might appear to those outside the establishment.
This is where we can help.
