School Ofsted banners are a great way to promote the achievement of your school.
By flying your ofsted banners high and proud, you'll be sure to catch the attention of passers.
Plus, the positive message both the ofsted outstanding banner and the ofsted good banner sends will reflect well on your school as a whole.
We will help you choose the right Ofsted Banner, and the correct ofsted logo, for your school and look at the available options. We'll start at the beginning and try to answer as many of the frequently asked questions we have experienced over the years.
You’ve worked hard to achieve your rating – now let everyone know about it with our eye-catching Ofsted banners! Printed in full colour on a durable PVC banner, our signs are perfect for promoting your school as an outstanding institution. When not in use, the banner can be rolled up and stored away easily. So make sure your school is looking its best with an Ofsted banner.
We offer hems along all four edges so they’re easy to put up when fixing with cable ties/bungee cords depending upon how much tension there will likely ever really apply during use- not only do these provide stability but also they ensure that your banner will last a long time.
If you’re not sure what you need for your Ofsted Banner or what Ofsted Logo to use, we offer “The Guide to Ofsted Banners” to simplify things for you.

Ofsted good or Ofsted outstanding banner designs
If you work in a school, then you know that Ofsted is an important part of how your school is perceived.
You may also know that having an Ofsted banner 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.
Our school banners are produced to a high standard from pvc banner material. The print is full colour and ensures the content & ofsted logo will last for a very long time.
What Ofsted banner designs & sizes do you offer?
Choosing the right ofsted banner
We offer a wide range of printed banner sizes. The main things to consider are;
a) Where is the banner about to be fixed? No point buying a banner too large for a location.
b) How far away will people be when reading the banner. It’s worth getting a banner large enough to be read from a distance.
The smallest size is 4ft x 1ft (1220 x 305mm) which is suitable for areas where the person reading the banner will be quite close. Whereas our most popular large banner is 16ft x 4ft (4880 x 1220mm) and packs a punch in delivering your message. It’s large text and images can be easily seen and read from a distance away, just double check that you have enough space on site for it to be positioned.
Our standard design templates are shown below.

How durable are the banners?
Heavy duty PVC with metal eyelets
We are a sign making company which has been around since 1971. We’ve got a significant amount of design, manufacture and print equipment which is used to make signs. Banners are a form of signage which our team can put through the same processes to give you a high end product.
All of our Banners are made with a heavy duty PVC and are made to a high standard. They are finished with metal eyelets so that they can be easily attached to a fence, or walls, with cable ties, rope or mechanical fixings.
We also use solvent-based print machinery, it produces high-quality full colour print that is fade-resistant and vibrant while still being more cost-effective & durable than some other forms of printing.
Which ofsted award do I display?
That entirely depends on the award your school has received. You may only display a banner of the appropriate award. ie. Ofsted good banner if you’ve been awarded a Good award status.
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 number of ways to fix the pvc banner.
We can provide a pack of 50 cable ties which is an easy way to install them.
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. ie: Banners on fences
The bungee cords won’t tighten up over time like cable ties can, but they are much easier to undo. They’re great for areas where the risk of interference with the printed pvc banner is low.

Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.
If you are nervous or anxious about getting your signage done then these are the people who will put you at your easy with their friendly, helpful and patient approach they guided me through the process. They listened, asked questions and made suggestions to ensure they understood what I wanted the finished signage to look like. I loved the end product, so a huge thank you to you all.
I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!
Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.
Just wanted to take the time to say we couldn’t be happier with what you did!

Of 5 quotes obtained Signet were the best on price. All the people that I dealt with either by phone or e-mail were polite and very knowledgeable of the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend to others in need of this product or service.
Very happy with the site boards we ordered! Materials and printing to a high standard – very professional finish. Excellent service too. Friendly staff and good communications, so all went very smoothly. We were lucky enough to find the company through Google Search and would definitely recommend them to others.
