Slough's protection failings put children at risk

Significant failings in child protection practices at Slough Borough Council have been identified by Ofsted inspectors.

In a report published this week, the watchdog said inadequate practice was found in the council’s quality of risk assessment and care planning, managerial oversight, and challenge in case work.

The "systematic failure" of some managers and independent reviewing officers was highlighted by inspectors, who said there was a lack of contingency planning for children subject to child protection plans over a number of months.

My comment: Never mind a reactive after the event report what about some proactive arse kicking so this sort of thing doesn't become systemic in the first place! Yet another not fit for purpose watchdog who does nothing but produce reports in an attempt to make themselves look effective. Reports didn't help Baby P did they!
