Project Description

Lucas Vale Primary school is part of the Grinling Gibbons and Lucas Vale (GGLV) Federation. The goals and ambitions of the staff and governors is to make sure that they are at the forefront of innovative learning experiences, ensuring they deliver a world class education for all of their children.

Lucas Vale Primary School is committed to creating a safe, secure and vibrant learning environment, one that is firmly rooted in strong moral values; their school community takes pride in helping each individual to flourish. Personalised learning ensures that they meet the needs of all children and enable them to reach their full potential. Children at Lucas Vale feel safe, happy and we strive to help them achieve their goals.

At Lucas Vale they believe children learn best when they are taken out of their comfort zones, not spoon fed the learning; use their higher order thinking skills and explore and action their learning. High aspirations and expectations are at the heart of school life and support the children’s development of confidence, self esteem and respect.

The Challenge

The very simplistic and small signage at Lucas Vale was lost on the large fencing surrounding the school and lacking the impact that the canvas desired. New visitors to the site would struggle to know they were at their destination as the signs lacked an identity and message. The new signage needed to give the school an identity and have a strong and positive message to staff, children and parents as well as new visitors to the school.

The Solution

The new fence mounted signs, incorporated the Lucas Vale windmill logo and the strong corporate colours and typefaces on a bigger tray design. The size and clarity of the information give an immediate impact reflecting the positive, professional and creative nature of the school. Strategically placed to be viewed and seen as soon as the school is in sight, the bright but appropriate solution endorses the schools identity and presence.
