  1. Merton Abbey

    Merton Abbey Primary School asked us to create a set of wristbands for use during their upcoming school trips. We used their school colours for the silicone & ink colours - contrasting bright yellow against cyan. The text & their school logo stand our against the silicone, immediately drawing attention to the contact information.

     

    School Trip Wristbands are a great way to help to ensure the safety of your students during trips, as well as promoting inclusivity within the school itself. We are able to include your schools' logo, as well as pantone colour matching to your schools' colours to ensure a consistent brand image.

  2. LMPS 2

    Lady Margaret Primary School asked us to create 2 sets of wristbands for them - Attendance Reward Bands, to incentivise students to maintain high attendance rates, and Allergy Wristbands for use in conjunction with their meal system wristbands.

     

    We included their logo on the attendance wristbands, with print colours that contrast nicely against their chosen silicone colours. For the Allergy wristbands, we used the bold "Baskerville" font in white ink.

  3. Universal Credit is a social security benefit introduced in the UK in 2013 to replace six means-tested benefits and tax credits: income based Jobseeker's Allowance, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, income based Employment and Support Allowance and Income Support.

     

    All children in reception, Year One and Two currently automatically qualify for free school meals in England and Scotland. Eligibility for free school meals from Year Three is linked to benefits, and the system of calculating and claiming benefits is changing.

     

    In February the government announced that children in Year Three and above in England whose parents earn up to £7,400 a year would be entitled to a free school meal. This figure is slightly lower at £7,320 for Scotland, and almost double in Northern Ireland at £14,000.

     

    These earnings thresholds are not currently linked to inflation - the IFS (Institute for Fiscal Studies) advises that 100,000 extra children would be eligible for free school meals by 2022 if the thresholds were linked to inflation.

  5. Deer Park School Trip Wristbands

    Deer Park School asked us to create a set of School Trip Wristbands for them to use during upcoming field trips. We've colour matched to the 2 separate parts of the school shield logo, and incorporated those colours into the text in order to keep to the school's strict branding guidelines. The result is a very professional, presentable wristband that will be sure to identify students as members of the school and will no doubt come in handy should any students become separated from the group whilst out.

     

    School Trip Wristbands are a great way to help to ensure the safety of your students during trips, as well as promoting inclusivity within the school itself. We are able to include your schools' logo, as well as pantone colour matching to your schools' colours to ensure a consistent brand image.

  6. Harry Gosling Primary Reading Bands

    Harry Gosling Primary School ordered another set of reading award bands - this time in a different selection of colours to their previous orders. Using these bands in different colours is a great way to reward students at different points in the year, or once they hit certain milestones - tiered systems are proving incredibly popular with our customers recently.

     

    This also works great for an attendance rewards system - at the end of each term, pupils are given wristbands of a certain colour corresponding to their attendance levels that term. Keep an eye on our shop page for Multicoloured Attendance Band packs coming soon.

  7. Coldfall Primary Trip Bands

    Coldfall Primary School asked us to create another set of trip bands for them - this being their second order. We used the same silicone colour as their initial order - Cyan 801C - a bright, vibrant pantone colour. The print is in black ink and stands out well from the background, making it easily legible.

     

    Overall, we're very pleased with the end result.

  8. Southwark Park Attendance

    Southwark Park Primary School were interested in using our Attendance Incentive Bands as rewards for their students, but wanted different silicone colours to use for each term. We currently hold only purple attendance bands in stock, but were more than happy to produce these wristbands for them.

     

    We will soon hold all of the above colours of attendance bands in stock - keep an eye on our shop page!

     

    Attendance bands are a great incentive for students to achieve outstanding attendance rates. A number of our customers have now opted to use a variety of silicone colours, like Southwark Park, to award students at the end of each term - some have decided to use the different colours to award students that achieve certain rates of attendance as well.
