Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews
The changes to Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards have also brought about changes to learning processes such as Serious Case Reviews.
Nationally there is a Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel. This panel will oversee each areas decision to initiate Local Reviews. This panel will also receive a Rapid Review report from the area that outlines the case and any lessons to be learnt. In certain circumstances the national panel may determine that a case has significant national learning and they will take responsibility for commissioning a national level review.
Locally we’ll receive notifications on serious child safeguarding cases, such as:
- Suspected/known abuse or neglect of a child
- Child death or serious injury
The local authority will identify such cases with the other core partners. WPS then holds a rapid review panel made from core partners and involved agencies, reviewing against the criteria set out in the Working Together 2018 document. From this a Local Safeguarding Practice Review could then be commissioned.
Once concluded reports of the reviews will be published here.
