Bexley SHIELD Serious Incident Procedures - Summary

These procedures seek to support Bexley S.H.I.E.L.D. and its partners to ensure robust systems are in place for reporting, investigating and responding to serious incidents so lessons are learned and appropriate action taken to prevent future harm. They comply with statutory guidance set out in Chapter 4, Working Together 2018 and with the National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel: practice guidance issued in April 2019.

Any member of staff may make a notification to Bexley S.H.I.E.L.D. regarding a serious incident, however, it is advisable to first discuss this with the safeguarding lead in your organisation. The Serious Incident Notification Form must be completed as fully as possible and emailed to shield@bexley.gov.uk no later than five working days of becoming aware that a serious incident has occurred. A copy of the notification form is available at Appendix 1 of the procedures.
