As the country begins to open up after the COVID-19 pandemic, this newsletter focusses on the follow-up analysis to our practice briefing about safeguarding children during the pandemic. The analysis was conducted earlier this year and we hope the findings are useful to all those working with children as the restrictions lift.
We would also like to thank everyone who attended the webinar on our Annual Report in June. There was overwhelming feedback that safeguarding partners and practitioners would like more steer on conducting Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (LCSPRs). Therefore, we have developed some LCSPR key messages for this newsletter which we hope will assist Safeguarding Partners in further developing work in this area.
Finally, the Department for Education (DfE) published its Serious Incident Notification (SIN) data last week. In this newsletter, we offer some reflections on these trends and how these link to the rapid reviews considered by the Panel.
