Serious and fatal child maltreatment: setting serious case review data in context with other data on violent and maltreatment-related deaths in 2009-10

This interim report summarises data from Serious Case Reviews (SCR) notified to the Department for Education during 2009-10.

The aim of this work is to provide up to date, comprehensive data on serious and fatal maltreatment of children in England, and to set those data in the context of other relevant data on children’s health, well-being and possible harm. This has been achieved through a descriptive analysis of Serious Case Reviews from 2009-10, using data from the database reports.
