Schools in the Community: Action Research on Safety (SCARS) Project. Deliverable Number 2, Report on Before Surveys

By M. Page and R. Dixey


This document represents the second deliverable of the Schools in the Community: Action Research on Safety (SCARS) project. The project is a joint one between Leeds City Council's Road Safety Promotion Unit (RSPU), the Faculty of Health and Social Care at Leeds Metropolitan University (LMU) and the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds (ITS). The objectives of the project are: \ud To develop a whole school approach to road safety \ud To raise awareness among adults about their responsibilities for road safety \ud To evaluate the benefits of the approach \ud This document outlines the way the project team has approached the last of these, the evaluation of the benefits. In particular it gives details on the selection of study sites, the various studies that were undertaken and some preliminary results from these studies. This document does not give information on the interventions that have and are taking place. It is inevitable that, as part of these interventions additional information about the success or otherwise of the initiative may be obtained, such as how much information has been successfully imparted to children, how many meetings of community groups have occurred etc. The studies outlined in this document, therefore, only form part of the evaluation process. As the project is only part way through, this document does not include any evaluation of the success or otherwise of the initiative as a whole for the very simple reason that no 'after' studies have yet taken place. The initiative as a whole will be evaluated in the Final Report of the project
