Resource Prioritisation

In the current climate with funding decreasing and demand for road safety services increasing, I am often left the position where I am unable to deliver services to school due to lack of resources. I am looking at a way of prioritising delivery to schools. Does anyone have a criteria that they are willing to share?

Hi Sue,
We faced this issue in Birmingham too especially with the amount of schools we have. We've developed a teacher CPD session where we invite groups of school staff on a termly basis for a training session. The teachers are then equipped with resources to deliver this at their own schools.
Let me know if you'd like any further information

In Hertfordshire we have over 600 schools, as we deliver Road Safety initiatives free of charge we prioritise schools that are actively working on their Modeshift STARS travel plan

Resource Prioritisation

Hi,
From a supplier's perspective, the shift we have seen has been towards:
Generic materials rather than bespoke campaigns, which cover 80-90% of countrywide educational road safety concerns rather than hyper-local issues. Local hot topics are covered on an individual school-by-school basis by RSOs
Supplier delivering materials direct to schools with covering instructions, rather than being delivered individually by an RSO at a school session
Creating pupil-led and pupil-run campaigns that use gamification to maintain interest in the campaign
Road safety delivered in short ten-minute, round robin sessions to year 5s and 6s, as part of a general safety session with other services (such as Junior Citizens, Crucial Crew etc); supported by a booklet or similar to take away at end of the session
Creating programmes that are linked to the curriculum and that teachers can deliver (can be difficult as it's not like teachers aren't already busy and the curriculum is an ever-changing beast!)

I'm not sure if that is at all helpful! Please drop me a line if you want more details. Good luck!
