Safeguarding is paramount at Cecil Gowing Infant School, and it underpins everything we do. We are fully committed to ensuring the safety, welfare, and protection of all children in our care. Our safeguarding policies and procedures are rigorous, reflecting our unwavering dedication to creating a secure and nurturing environment where every child feels valued and supported.

We recognise that safeguarding encompasses a wide range of factors beyond physical safety, including emotional well-being, mental health, and online safety. As such, we continually review and update our policies to address emerging challenges and ensure comprehensive protection for our pupils.

At Cecil Gowing, safeguarding is not just a responsibility; it is a shared commitment involving all members of our school community. We actively promote an ethos of vigilance and openness, encouraging staff, pupils, and parents to communicate any concerns promptly. Through effective collaboration and ongoing training, we strive to create a culture where safeguarding is everyone’s priority.

By prioritising safeguarding in all aspects of school life, we aim to provide a secure foundation for our children to learn, grow, and thrive.

At our school, safeguarding is essential. If you have any concerns about a child, please share them immediately with our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). Your vigilance ensures prompt action to protect our children.
