Statement from child safety team over Pelka review

The chairman of the Coventry Safeguarding Children Board, Amy Weir, said a "brief" report containing further analysis of authorities' actions in the Daniel Pelka case would be published.

A fresh report has been ordered following a damning report which found numerous failings by police, social services, and schools.

We have provided a full and detailed response to the minister, as requested at the end of last week, about our plans for further analysis of the serious case review.

A further brief publication will be written over the next few weeks to complete this next phase of the review.

We are now totally focused on ensuring all agencies deliver and complete the actions arising from the recommendations in the serious case review and welcome the minister's continuing interest in this work.
