Learning from Local CSPRs

This page contains relevant information and guidance relating to case reviews published by Solihull Safeguarding Children Partnership.

Chapter 5 of the statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children 2023 places a duty on local safeguarding partnerships to undertake a rapid review for serious child safeguarding cases where:

  • Abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected; and
  • The child has died or been seriously harmed.

Rapid review reports are not published, however the SSCP may create learning briefings so that learning can be shared with professionals. This decision will be made by the SSCP CSPR Panel and will be based on the issues highlighted within the rapid review process.

Below are links to the most recent recent Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews published by the Solihull Safeguarding Children Partnership.
