WE’RE DELIGHTED TO BE TEAMING UP WITH LEADING EDUCATION MAGAZINE FUNDED TO OFFER ITS READERS THE CHANCE TO WIN A CUSTOM-DESIGNED GRAPHIC WALL, WORTH £500, FOR THEIR LEARNING SPACE.
Published three times a year, FundEd aims to keep school business managers up-to-date with the very latest news and opportunities for funding and income generation, and ways to improve their schools’ environment and performance.
Research shows that school design and layout can boost pupils’ academic performance.
A study by the University of Salford, which looked at the effects of classroom design on children’s academic progress, found that well-designed learning space can positively impact and influence learning performance.
It found that pupils who were schooled in a classroom environment which made creative and flexible use of design, natural light and noise, temperature, air quality, space and storage performed up to 25% better than those in schools which didn’t.
Earlier this year, we ran a similar competition for schools to ‘Win a Wall’, which was won by the Whitegate School, in Nottingham. We designed, printed and installed a 2.8m x 4m custom wall featuring the school’s values of “enjoy, achieve, excel”.
Our Sales Director, Dave Lister, said: “While schools’ focus, quite rightly, is on providing quality teaching to hit exam targets, studies show that the physical environment within schools can have a massive impact on its learning outcomes.”
“It’s evident that parents value a school’s academic performance, but many are also interested in life at the school, the space in which their children will be studying, and more importantly what is being done to motivate them internally. Good design is key to inspiring students and motivating staff.”
“This is an issue which we’re passionate about helping schools to address, which is why we’re pleased to not only be sharing our advice and expertise on making their budget work harder to create a fantastic learning environment for their pupils.”
“We’re also delighted to be working with FundEd to offer its readers the chance to totally transform their school space with a custom designed, printed and installed wall graphic which will inspire students and could provide students with the motivation they need to succeed.”
