Independent review of child protection calls for greater professional freedom

The review of child safeguarding systems which began last year has concluded that child protection needs to focus more on outcomes and less on processes.

Professor Eileen Munro, who led the review, has found that local areas need greater freedom to engineer safeguarding that works, rather than concentrate on government targets and 'tick-boxing' exercises.

The report has proposed that those working with children should learn from past lessons and be provided with high quality training.

A "one size fits all" approach with focuses on central systems and targets is said to detract professionals from doing their jobs effectively.
