Jones on SCRs

I am pleased to see Prof. Roy Jones in The Guardian ( arguing that Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) have important limitations, which mean that we need to reconsider how and when we use them.

His argument is that SCRs must help, not hinder, child protection. Costly, time-consuming and disruptive reviews that undermine, rather than inform, practice are a bad idea in anybody’s book.
