Click The Home Office announced on 15 June that the national Vetting and Barring Scheme (VBS) for those working with children and vulnerable adults will be placed on hold to allow it to be remodelled to proportionate and common sense levels. This means that the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) registration stage of the scheme (due to start on 26 July 2010) has been halted. The HCC VBS Implementation Team will continue to monitor the situation at a national level. Further updates will be made available throughout the review process.

Case Study Guidance and Templates This document provides copies of the case study template, along with guidance notes on completing each section. The case study format has been designed to capture information that will help schools to demonstrate the impact that they are having on outcomes for individual children and young people and on groups of children and young people and on other services. The template also seeks to demonstrate the knockon effects of providing early intervention and prevention on service delivery as a whole.

Case Study

Overview Summary

Please fill in field

Please fill in field

Completed by: Start date: End Date:

The template is designed to fill a maximum of one side of A4. We have built-in flexibility to the size of each of the sections but the final content should not exceed one side of A4. The reason for this is so that the case studies, when aggregated, retain the power of the information about individuals without overwhelming the reader with information. The case studies may be used as a framework for reviewing individual cases and potentially for internal review of the pilot. Please ensure that no boxes are left blank. All boxes should be completed- if it is difficult to complete a box please briefly say why or mark N/A.

Completing the case study template 1. Insert the profile of the child with ages, e.g. looked after child aged 5. The case study must be anonymous and therefore any names used should be made up. For your own future reference you should keep your own records of who this refers to. Use this field to record your own internal reference for auditing purposes.

7. Insert feedback from others. Ideally this should be information that contextualises the direct feedback from the child or family who are the subject of the case study. You can also use this field to highlight feedback from others, e.g. other family members, referrer, volunteer, sport coach, teachers etc.

2. Insert the name of the person completing the form.

8. This section asks you to record information about what helped to achieve the outcomes for this child or young person. Please specify:

3. Insert the Start and End date of the activity provided. 4. T  his section asks you to describe the child’s experience to date and their personal context. Please also identify direct and indirect risk factors that highlight why this child is receiving services. 5. T  his section seeks further detail about the impact of the service and the outcomes for the child and their family. State the impact and outcomes in the context of time periods as appropriate. Describe the impact and also SMART (i.e. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Timed) outcomes, examples of which are shown below. * There may be other outcomes that you may be working towards which are not included below e.g. increase attendance, reduce exclusions. Where this is the case, insert a brief description of the outcome you are working towards. 6. Insert direct feedback or opinions expressed by the child or their family about the impact of the service.

• Individual factors: factors relating to the individual child, young person or family that contributed to improved outcomes. • Factors within the direct control / influence of the activity that helped improve outcomes, e.g. the way the service is organised, the way it delivers services, the types of practitioners it employs etc. • Partnership working: how partnership working helped to impact on outcomes. 9. This section asks you to record information about what did not help this child or family using the same categories as 8 above. 10. Please specify the current costs of providing the service or activity to this child or family. 11. Record any lessons learned and improvement suggestions for the project or service, including how you might do things differently if you provided the service again. 12. Record any lessons learned that are relevant for other partners. This could be around how mainstream services are delivered, how the workforce is structured, how support is structured.
