Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews and Learning Reviews
Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews are a statutory process governed by Chapter 4 of Working Together 2018. They are designed to identify improvements in systems and processes so that agencies can learn lessons and improve the way they work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.
A CSPR may be carried out when a child or young person dies or is seriously harmed and abuse or neglect is suspected or is a known factor.
The SSCP has a CSPR Group that looks at cases which are referred to it to consider whether a CSPR needs to be undertaken. It may conclude that some other type of learning review needs to take place.
