Learning from Reviews / Serious Case Reviews

Learning from Reviews

Child protection is a complex multi-agency system with many different organisations and individuals playing their part. Reflecting on how well that system is working is critical as we constantly seek to improve our collective response to children and their families.

Safeguarding reviews are undertaken to learn from past events and consolidate understanding about what is working well and what presents challenges to organisations, working with children and families in Sefton.  Central to all Sefton's reviews will be a focus on trying to understand the journey of events from the child's perspective.

Sefton LSCB has a sub group (Practice Review Group) which oversees and quality assures reviews undertaken by the Board, and provides advice on whether the criteria for conducting a review have been met.

Practice Review Group (PRG) receives cases referred in from agencies and decides whether a multi-agency review is recommended.  PRGs function is to improve inter-agency working.  Any case can be referred to PRG where an agency feels that multi-agency learning can be extracted or a case where good practice has been identified.  Reflective Review Procedure. If you wish to refer a case into PRG you can complete the Reflective Review Referral Form.

Additional information and guidance in relation to reviews can be found in Working Together to Safeguard Children (DfE).
