The final report of the Munro Review of Child Protection has been published today.
The report, A child-centred system, "sets out proposals for reform which, taken together, are intended to create the conditions that enable professionals to make the best judgments about the help to give children, young people and families. This involves moving from a system that has become over-bureaucratised and focused on compliance to one that values and develops professional expertise and is focused on the safety and welfare of children and young people."
The report can be found (in PDF format) here and a press notice, setting out Professor Munro’s recommendations to reform the child protection system, can be found here. The Munro Review sub-site on the Department for Education website is here.
