This way, please
Directional arrows can guide pupils towards the right departments at the right time. Combine them with images related to the department to inspire pupils and get them in the right mindset for learning.
Or include inspirational quotes about particular subjects or fields of interest to prompt discussion and promote curiosity in pupils.
A splash of colour
Colour coding areas is a fresh and fun alternative to traditional wayfinding signage.
You can even include identifying icons that can be used around your school alongside your colour coded areas. This is particularly useful for SEND pupils or younger children who struggle to read formal signage.
As well as aiding wayfinding, colour coding and icons will add a personal touch to your learning environment and create a sense of belonging for all pupils.
Use your school signs to enthuse and engage pupils in all areas of interest, not just your core subjects.
