Harrow Gate Primary Academy
Harrow Gate Primary Academy in Stockton-on-Tees contacted Hive requiring a complete overhaul of their school canteen and dining area. The theme of the project was healthy eating – super inspiring! It’s always exciting to start work on transforming a new space. So we couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
Healthy Eating in School
Promoting healthy eating and a balanced diet is extremely important within schools. Firstly, it influences the development of a child’s eating and fitness habits within school and beyond. Secondly, it is a factor that Ofsted take into account during a school inspection. Notably Ofsted’s Common Inspection Framework outlines what inspectors are looking for. Throughout inspection they will look to see if a school is successfully supporting pupils to gain “knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy” and “make informed choices about healthy eating, and fitness”.
Wall graphics are a fantastic way to display the school’s ethos and culture around healthy eating! Especially in a dining hall or canteen.
The school were looking for a fun and engaging design, incorporating the theme of healthy eating. This was all the inspiration Hive needed to create a range of exciting ideas. From these, Harrow Gate selected a route featuring wildlife scenes and cute characters. The photographic and illustrative design features a wide range of fruit and vegetable animals. We then mixed them with healthy eating messages to create an extremely effective but fun design.
adding a fresh twist
As part of the design brief, the school asked us to integrate a trust-wide healthy eating logo into our design. We seamlessly incorporated the logo into the design. This ensured the branding was consistent, but the unique design provided the school with the fresh approach they were looking for. The result was extremely impactful.
In addition, the school extended the design theme to cover four of their serving trolleys. And finally, we also created printed posters for the walls. This completed the look and transformed the whole canteen. The end result was an impactful design which will certainly be extremely effective in instilling healthy eating habits in school.
