Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews
If a child is in immediate danger please call 999
When a child dies or is seriously harmed, including death by suspected suicide, and abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor in the death, the Safeguarding Children Partnership may decide to conduct a Child Safeguarding Practice review (formerly known as Serious Case Review or SCR) to examine organisations' involvement with the family and identify learning for future improvement.
Below are the case reviews conducted in Barnet and associated learning materials.

The NSPCC website contains a library of all Serious Case Reviews conducted in England, where you can find more information on the serious case review/child safeguarding practice review process. There is also a series of thematic briefings on learning from case reviews which can be found here.
The NSPCC has published a set of briefings looking at practice issues relating to how professionals in different agencies communicate and make decisions. They provide a more detailed understanding of practice issues highlighted by the SCR reports and can help support change and improvement work at national and local levels.
The National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel publish thematic reviews and other learning reviews of national relevance.
