Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council has published findings from six independent investigations commissioned in response to the findings of the Independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham 1997-2013 (Jay Report) and the Report of inspection of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (Louise Casey Report). One of the reports reviews the 15 case files for children, identified as examples in the Jay report, investigating whether there was evidence that council employees of were guilty of misconduct, professional misconduct or capability issues. The review found pockets of adequate and good practice on the part of individuals, as well as evidence of extremely poor practice. The report recommends that one case relating to Child E, should be passed to the local safeguarding children board to consider if it should be investigated as a serious case.
