A Guide to Ofsted Banners & How They Can Help You

What are Ofsted banners?

If you work in a school, then you know that Ofsted is an important part of your life. You may also know that having Ofsted banners can be very beneficial to your school. Not only does it show that you are compliant with Ofsted regulations, but it also shows your students and their parents that you take education seriously. In this guide, we will advise you on what an Ofsted Banner is and the many options we have, as well as how to choose the school banner showing your Ofsted rating that is right for you! Ofsted banners are a type of signage that displays your school’s compliance with Ofsted regulations. They are typically hung in the front of the school so that everyone can see them.

We have a variety of standardised designs listed on our Ofsted Banner product page, but if you prefer, we may also create a unique one that expresses what you want the Ofsted banner to say. We can also use your brand standards without concerns for conflicting with the Ofsted logo rules. Our art department has carefully studied the Ofsted branding standards and developed the designs below in accordance with how they want the latest Ofsted logo to be presented.

The most effective way for this is to make use of a large, eye-catching design that will fill up as much area available, so that it may be seen from as far away as possible.

We also offer a banner design service with every Ofsted banner purchase

How durable are the Ofsted banners?

Our Ofsted banners are made with a heavy duty PVC and are made to a high standard. The Ofsted banners are finished with metal eyelets so that they can be easily attached to a fence or from outside walls with cable ties or rope. We also use solvent-based printing machinery, it produces high-quality results that are fade-resistant and vibrant while still being more cost-effective than other forms of printing.

Do I require an Ofsted good banner or an outstanding banner?

The difference between Ofsted Outstanding Banners and Ofsted Good Banners. Ofsted Outstanding Banners are for schools that have been graded as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, while Ofsted Good Banners are for schools that have been graded as ‘good’ by Ofsted. The main difference between the two banners is that the Outstanding Banner will have the Outstanding logo. The Ofsted Good Banner, on the other hand, will have the Ofsted Good logo.


How do we secure the banners?

Because we produce all school banners with hems on all four edges and sturdy metal eyelets, you have a lot of alternatives. We can provide a pack of 50 cable ties, but you won’t need them all. It’s nice to have spares on hand in case something goes wrong. We also sell elasticated bungee ball loops in packs of 10 & 20. Bungee ball loops are utilized when you want to make sure there is equal tension across the Ofsted banner so that it can be proudly displayed without fear of falling down.

Where should the Ofsted Banner be displayed?

It’s best to post them in the most visible locations, such as at the entrance of your school or on a prominent wall. All school banners, especially banners for Ofsted results are generally hung from the front school gate and you want as many people as possible to be aware of your success.
