Learning and Improvement Committee

The purpose of the Learning and Improvement Committee is to ensure the Strategic Partnership’s responsibilities around reviewing safeguarding incidents are fulfilled, under The Care Act 2014 and Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015).

This Sub-Board has the ability to recommend a SAR where it is felt learning could be gained but the previously mentioned criteria haven’t been fulfilled. The Sub Board is also responsible for fulfilling the Strategic Partnership's duties around the process for commissioning and conducting Serious Case Reviews under the circumstances defined in Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015).

Where the threshold is not met for SAR / SCR but there are learning and improvement opportunities, the Sub Board must ensure that appropriate strategies are deployed so that lessons can be learned and services improved.
