Child Protection and Safeguarding
Nothing is more important to us here at Clough & Risegate Community Primary School than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
We have a pastoral responsibility towards the pupils at Clough & Risegate Community Primary School. We have a set of clear policies and procedures for safeguarding children. We endeavour to create and maintain a safe environment for the children at our school and take action when there are child welfare concerns.
Mrs Rooney is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) in our school.
If you suspect or believe a child is suffering, or is likely to suffer, significant harm (including any form of mistreatment or abuse) you should ALWAYS report your concerns.
In an emergency always dial 999.
If there is no immediate danger to the child, or if you need some advice or information, you can contact the Children Services Customer Service Centre (CSC) on 01522 782111. If it is outside normal office hours you can contact the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 01522 782333
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child at our school, please contact:
Our school's Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL):
Mrs B Rooney, Head Teacher. Telephone: 01775 750297 or email email@example.com

Clough and Risegate Community Primary School are committed to regular Safeguarding Professional Development and all staff follow the Lincolnshire 6 Year Safeguarding Children Training Pathway.
Our school Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy supports us to safeguard and protect the children at Clough and Risegate Community Primary School. It provides staff, governors, volunteers, community members, children and their families with the overarching principles that guide our approach to child protection. A copy of our latest policy is below and it can also be found in our policy section of our website. A hard copy can be accessed from the school office.

The Prevent Strategy
Prevent is part of CONTEST, the Government’s strategy to address terrorism. The main aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent focuses on all forms of terrorist threats. E.g. international terrorism, far right extremists (among others).
The Government’s Prevent strategy can be found at the following address: www.homeoffice.gov.uk
Three key themes
The Prevent Engagement Team of officers and police staff aim to encourage discussion ensuring that terrorism is prevented from taking root in our communities. They support the wider engagement activities already taking place in schools, places of worship and community groups. Through this work they aim to strengthen communities in order to challenge the ideologies and messages of hate which lead to terrorism.
How you can help?
It is important that we all work together, so that we can protect our communities. There are many ways you can help.
The police, Local Authorities, and our partner organisations are working together to help strengthen and empower our communities to reject those who want to cause harm. We work together and focus on three key themes:
Online safety is all about the measures taken to ensure the safety of children, and adults working with children, whilst using digital technologies.
Digital technology reaches far and wide. It includes not only computers and laptops, but also technologies such as: iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone; Xbox; Playstation; Nintendo Switch; mobile phones and anything else which allows interactive digital communication.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
