If an agency feels that a case meets the criteria for a Serious Case Review, they should submit a Rapid Review referral form to the RBSB Business Unit within 5 working days of the incident.
Criteria as follows:
Abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected and either
i) the child has died
ii) the child has been seriously harmed and there is cause forconcern as to the way in which the authority, their Board partners or relevant persons have worked together to safeguard the child
Referrers should also notify the Local Authority of this referral in order to complete appropriate notifications to Ofsted.
