Safeguarding

Safeguarding Leaflet for Staff and Visitors

At Houghton Regis Primary we take safeguarding and child protection very seriously.  We audit our provision annually and make sure we are always up-to-date with government legislation and advice.  School staff play an essential role in protecting children from abuse as they have regular contact with children and are in a strong position to identify any concerns thus staff receive training prior to working here at school.
