The system of rapid reviews and local child safeguarding practice reviews (LCSPRs) was established in 2018, to replace the previous system of serious case reviews. For a while the two systems ran alongside each other, but since October 2019, only the new system can be used. The Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel (the Panel) published practice guidance in 2019 and its first Annual Report in 2020 (covering 2018-19). This present study, the first independent review of rapid reviews and LCSPRs, was undertaken by a joint team from the University of East Anglia and the University of Birmingham. Our aims were to provide an overview of key themes, issues and challenges for practitioners and agencies; draw out implications for policy makers and practitioners; assess how well the rapid reviews and LCSPRs achieve the tasks required of them; analyse the sample of LCSPRs available to us in order to increase understanding of the root causes of systemic strengths and vulnerabilities within local practice; and generate findings and questions for local safeguarding partners and the Panel to support them in their work to improve child protection practice.
