“Lacked consistency, lacked urgency…”

“Lacked consistency, lacked urgency, didn’t challenge the mother enough”. These are among the damning findings against Haringay Council in the Baby P investigation.

Sharon Shoesmith, long since gone as Director of Social Services, presided over a function which, time after time, ignored the most basic and fundamental signals.

Little seemed to have been learned from the Victoria Climbie tragedy. We can only hope that the report from ex-KCC Director of Education Graham Badman will drive home the improvements in Haringay which are so obviously and urgently needed.
