Child Safeguarding Practice Review (CSPR): Leiland-James Michael Corkill

Today the CSCP have published the Child Safeguarding Practice Review for Leiland-James Michael Corkill.

The full report along with the CSCP response can be accessed on our website here.

A Child Safeguarding Practice Review (CSPR) is a locally conducted multi-agency review in circumstances where a child has been abused or neglected, resulting in serious harm or death, and/or there is cause for concern as to the way in which agencies have worked together to safeguard the child.

The purpose of a review is to establish whether there are lessons to be learned about the way in which local professionals and agencies work together to safeguard children; identify what needs to be changed and, as a consequence, improve inter-agency working to better safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

The statutory guidance for Serious Child Safeguarding Reviews was updated in Working Together 2018. Previously, these types of reviews were called Serious Case Reviews (SCRs).

Sharing learning from safeguarding practice reviews in order to improve safeguarding practice is vital. We use the recommendations from practice reviews to improve safeguarding of children and young people.

If you work with children and families in Cumbria, there may be additional specific actions and recommendations for your agency and your role. Please ask your manager, or contact your representative on the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership, to find out more.
