“I described it as akin to quality supervision (a rare experience for many DSLs). A fantastic use of time and resource”
OSCB monitors and scrutinises practice in Oxfordshire to ensure that learning is shared with the workforce to improve practice.
“Safeguarding partners should agree on ways to co-ordinate their safeguarding services; act as a strategic leadership group in supporting and engaging others; and implement local and national learning including from serious child safeguarding incidents… Learning is promoted and embedded in a way that local services for children and families can become more reflective and implement changes to practice”, Working Together 2018.
The OSCB helps to facilitate learning from practice to:
- Establish whether there are lessons to be learned from cases, especially regarding the way in which local professionals and agencies work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children
- Identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted on, and what is expected to change as a result
- Improve inter-agency working to better safeguard children in Oxfordshire
