Removal of School Crossing Patrollers
As you may be aware, the Council’s income from government grant is falling and at the same time as demand for our services is increasing. The Council has had to achieve significant levels of saving in recent years, and that remains the case as it plans for 2017/18 and beyond.
This has resulted in difficult choices having to be made. The removal of patrollers from locations which no longer satisfy the current criteria for the provision of a patroller was one of these decisions, having been taken at the 24 February 2016 meeting of the Executive Committee.
Further to this, savings proposal CER62 was approved by the Council on 16 February 2017 which is a continuation of the savings approved in 2015/16 involving the withdrawal of lunchtime provision at all sites and the withdrawal of provision at any existing sites which would not satisfy the current criteria for provision of a patroller.
