National review into safeguarding agencies aware of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes

The government has launched a major review into the circumstances leading up to the murder of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

On a local level, an urgent Joint Targeted Area Inspection will take place of all the safeguarding agencies in Solihull tasked with protecting children at risk of abuse and neglect. This inspection will be led jointly by Ofsted, the Care Quality Commission, HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Service and HM Inspectorate of Probation.

A separate independent national review, led by the National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel, will identify lessons that must be learnt from Arthur's tragic case for the benefit of other children across the country.

The timescale for publication of the national review is yet to be agreed.
