Haseltine Primary is a school in partnership with Fairlawn Primary school. Staff, governors and children work together to harness each other’s strengths and expertise so that children are offered the best possible education.
At Haseltine they aim to create a happy school where the learning atmosphere is relaxed and conducive to high attainment. They believe that every child should learn the skills for life long learning and be supported to develop as good citizens who contribute fully to their community. For the children to reach their full potential they need to work in partnership with their parents, carers and colleagues. Helping children to do their best is vital and working in partnerships allows Haseltine to understand what children are learning and what they are able to achieve.
Haseltine Primary School were keen to use their new, modern dining hall as a vehicle for the children to be more respectful and polite when eating. By calling it a restaurant, it would help the children to associate it with going out with their parents to various establishments. The word Restaurant suggests more than a school dining hall but the signage also needed to be a fun and enjoyable experience.
With a strong corporate brand, Pylon utilised this to create a bespoke Restaurant sign that mixed colourful typography with a playful illustrative background. Owls peeping out of leaves added the fun element to this purposeful sign. Pylon also made mini chalkboards to work with the sign enabling teachers to inform children and teachers what activities were going on in the Restaurant.
