Visual displays for schools
Visual displays for schools can support a range of objectives.
There are many types of visual displays for schools and most are suitable for any space, inside and outside your school.
- Some visual displays for schools are tailored towards learning and can help raise attainment rates across curriculum subjects.
- Others improve wellbeing, boost morale and help to create a positive and inclusive learning environment.
- Many displays add character to school buildings or serve as a backdrop for open days and events.
In this blog, we’ll explore various types of visual displays for schools and discuss the benefits of each.
Classrooms, corridors and stairwells all provide the perfect wall spaces for visual Wall Art.
Wall Art can serve as a learning aid to complement your lessons and get pupils in the right mindset for learning.
It can also be tailored to your curriculum and support your Ofsted inspection by raising aspirations in a particular subject area. You might wish to focus on a particular subject with a feature or timeline, or combine multiple subjects to show the breadth and balance of your curriculum.
Large visual displays facilitate active learning because they allow pupils to walk alongside key information. Use striking images and bold text, against a colourful backdrop, to engage all types of learners.
This is certainly a powerful resource to make learning fun and interesting for all pupils!
Raise morale and improve wellbeing
If your school is serious about improving wellbeing, an inspiring visual display can help.
First, select a communal area like your reception or hall, or a heavy footfall area like a corridor or stairwell.
Then, consider whether you want to improve wellbeing through;
- inspiring quotes and motivational phrases
- representative images that promote diversity and inclusion
- calm spaces where pupils can rest and reflect
- nature inspired wall designs featuring trees, wildlife and greenery
- break-out spaces that provides a visual distraction to help pupils decompress and regulate
We know that teachers spend a great deal of time supporting pupils’ wellbeing. Mental, emotional and behavioural challenges often detract from teaching time and affect the success of lessons.
Wellbeing inspired visual displays can support teachers’ efforts to create a calm and positive learning environment. These visual prompts can also reduce the amount of time teachers spend managing behavioural and emotional challenges in the classroom.
Make a great first impression
Prospective parents, pupils and teachers will be wowed by a visually appealing learning environment. Visual displays can also help you impress visitors at open days, events and Ofsted inspections.
They can even support recruitment and staff retention by showing, at a glance, what makes your school a wonderful place to work.
Investing in your visual environment sends a powerful message that you genuinely value the wellbeing of your staff and pupils.
Worth the investment?
The big question with visual displays is whether to opt for temporary or permanent fixtures…
Of course temporary displays may cost less upfront. But they usually require a great deal of maintenance, or need to be replaced regularly. So they might not have the staying power of a more permanent, premium display.
You’ll want any visual displays to look their best. Worn or tatty temporary displays will be memorable for all the wrong reasons! So it’s worth investing in durable, long-lasting displays for your school.
They’re a more sustainable option too, as they’ll last many years and require zero upkeep. Once again – this means less work for teachers.
