Dear Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,

Please treat this email as a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
1) For each financial quarter since April 2018, how many children have died in your area in cases where abuse and/or neglect were suspected or confirmed?

If you cannot provide figures for this exact date range, please provide data for the closest available date range and state clearly the dates that it covers.

By quarter I am referring to the following:

2018-19 (Q1 = April to June, Q2 = July to September, Q3 = October to December, Q4 = January to March)

2019-20 (Q1 = April to June, Q2 = July to September, Q3 = October to December, Q4 = January to March)

2020-21 ((Q1 = April to June, Q2 = July to September (please include the date in September data is correct to)

2) Broken down by financial quarter, how many of the children in question 1 had been referred to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub, or equivalent body for safeguarding children, prior to their death?

3) Broken down by financial quarter, how many of these children were in the care, or partial care of social services teams?

4) For your answer to question 1 above, for each financial quarter, please can you disclose how many were:
a) Babies (under 1 year old)
b) Toddlers/pre-school (between 1 and 4 years old)
c) Primary school age (4-11)
d) Secondary school age (11-18)

The next question is about referrals to your Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub or equivalent body for safeguarding children.
By “referral” I include those made officially by practitioners, teachers etc and any calls that may have been made via any publicly accessible helpline, website or online reporting form, whether anonymously or not.

5) For each quarter from April 2018 to September 2020, how many referrals were made about children to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub or its equivalent?
If you cannot provide a figure for this exact date range, please provide data for the closest available date range and state clearly the dates that it covers

Please provide the data in an Excel spreadsheet, filetype .xls, .xlsx or .csv. Please do not use a pdf.

Yours faithfully,
