Serious Case Reviews and Learning and Improvement Reviews
There are different types of reviews a LSCB undertakes in order to further learning and improve safeguarding in the borough.
Serious case reviews are local enquiries into the death or serious injury of a child where abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor. They are carried out by Local Safeguarding Children Boards so that lessons can be learned.
A Learning and Improvement Review may be undertaken when there has been a child protection incident but the criteria or threshold for a Serious Case Review has not been met however it is believed that the case does provide lessons of broader relevance.
