Quality & Performance Sub Group

The West Berkshire LSCB Quality and Performance sub-group, is responsible for co-ordinating and ensuring the effectiveness of the LSCB and its partner agencies’ operational practice. The Quality and Performance group is the ‘eyes and ears’ of the LSCB, it reviews our partnership practice around children and young people with specific needs and in specific circumstances, to understand what are we doing well for local children and families and what we need to do better.

The WB LSCB has developed its own comprehensive West Berkshire LSCB Business Plan Audit Programme.

The core functions of the WB LSCB Quality and Performance sub-group is:

  • Scrutinise and challenge multi-professional operational practice undertaken by LSCB partners (s5 LSCB Regulations, 2006) through carrying out thematic multi-agency audits in line with the LSCB Striving for Excellence plan; to determine what are we doing well for local children and families and what we need to do better.
  • Monitor multi-agency audit action plans to ensure that any changes we say we are going to make are followed through and that the difference these changes make to outcomes for children and families is understood.
  • Scrutinise and challenge performance data.
  • Oversee local Case Review and Serious Case Review activity to ensure actions are implemented.
