SCHOOL BADGES ARE FOR MORE THAN JUST IDENTIFICATION
The most common use of school badges within a school or greater educational environment is as a means of identification, or to signify the position of a particular individual, whether that is a student or a teacher.
Frequent examples of this might be a student wearing a prefect badge, a house captain badge or a school council badge, for example, and this is to ensure the student, and their position, is easily recognised and identified by fellow students or teachers.
In spite of school pin badges effectiveness as a means of identification, their versatility and adaptability allow them to be utilised successfully in a range of circumstances.
Applaud Students with Award Badges
When students perform to the best of their ability or succeed in tasks or competitions, their best efforts and participation deserve recognition. Pin badges are a fantastic – although often overlooked – way to congratulate and reward students.
School button badges, ‘well done’ badges in particular, provoke a sense of pride in pupils when adorned on their school uniforms and subsequently, they have the power to act a nugget of motivation for students.
Regardless of the size or significance of the award badge, recognition goes a long way amongst pupils. Award badges for students can really help spur pupils on to try their best and strive to achieve and succeed in whatever it is they are participating in, whether that be academic, arts or recreational.
Badges Plus’ collection of school merit badges consists of every ‘congratulations’ you could ever need to give, including school subject badges, school attendance badges, journey award badges, bespoke sports day badges and even sports day medals.
