Learning lessons together

Hull Safeguarding Children Board - Learning and Improvement framework 2014

In March 2013, the government published a new version of Working Together which sets out some key principles for learning, including those from serious case reviews and requires local safeguarding children boards to develop and publish a Learning and Improvement framework.

The Hull Safeguarding Children Board has committed to being a learning and improvement board and has evolved the way in which it conducts its business to ensure a focus on what really matters and to hear directly from the frontline about practice and system issues.

Good quality, meaningful learning and improvement activity will help the Hull Safeguarding Children Board to fulfil its statutory function to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of what is done locally to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

The framework below should enable organisations to be clear about their responsibilities to learn from experience and improve services as a result -


The board led on a multi agency case audit which took place between January and March and involved a large number of safeguarding partner agencies. The report, available to download below, provides a summary of what we collectively did and of what we learnt, about practice and about the process.
