The government has published guidance on how local authorities in England should report a serious child safeguarding incident to the Child Safeguarding Practice Review panel.

The guidance states that local authorities must use the child safeguarding incident notification system to notify the Panel if it’s known or suspected that a child has been abused or neglected. The statutory guidance Working together to safeguard children has been updated to reflect this change.
