A Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review will be commissioned by the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Partnership in circumstances where a more in depth review is needed to understand how local safeguarding arrangements should be strengthened as a result of initial learning identified in the rapid review. A local child safeguarding practice review will involve the family(if they wish to be involved), agencies who provided services to the family and the report will be published.
When each review is completed a report or summary report is published. This includes an outline of what happened, without identifying the child or their family, what went well and what needs to change to make sure that in future other children and young people can be better protected.
The child practice safeguarding review concerns the death of a 10 year old child who shall be known as Child QDS. Available reports:

The Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Partnership have published the Local Child safeguarding Practice Review report anonymised as MDS20/PDS20.
The review has considered the experience of two children from different families and different areas of Derbyshire. They will subsequently be referred to as young people YP1 and YP2 in recognition of their age, however they remain children as defined by the Children Act and the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Procedures.
The purpose of the joint review is to identify the learning from the individual circumstances of these young people and the systemic learning arising from their experiences that appears to have led to similar outcomes. School attendance, mental health and neglect are significant features in both cases.
Multi-agency action has been taken to address all of the recommendations set out within this review and the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Partnership will continue to ensure that assurance is obtained to demonstrate that the learning from this review has been embedded within agency practice and structure.
