Safer journeys for rural schools

The objective is to provide practitioners, policy makers, schools and their communities, with best practice guidance to identify, target and address key road safety issues at rural schools. In addition to providing rural school specific guidance, the guide provides links to a number of road safety resources and other guidance for planning, funding and evaluating safety projects and programmes. Specifically, the guide is intended to provide: 1. details of a safe system approach to school road safety, including safe roads and roadsides, safe speeds, safe road use, and safe vehicles; 2. a discussion of key crash issues in the vicinity or along the routes to rural schools; 3. tools to help identify and prioritise risk around rural schools, as well as planning an intervention approach; 4. a safe system toolbox of intervention options for road controlling authorities (RCA) and schools in rural environments, to help develop appropriate remedial treatments; 5. guidance for developing, prioritising and funding road safety infrastructure, speed management and education programmes; 6. references to further and more detailed information. The guide has also been developed to provide national consistency regarding the prioritisation of risk around rural schools and the application of proven countermeasures.
