Wood Report Review of the role and functions of Local Safeguarding Children Boards

The Department for Education has published Alan Wood's review of the role and functions of local safeguarding children's boards. It sets out a new framework for improving the organisation and delivery of multi-agency arrangements to protect and safeguard children. Recommendations include: discontinuing serious case reviews and establishing an independent body at national level to oversee a national learning framework for inquiries into child deaths and cases where children have experienced serious harm.
