Safeguarding is EVERYONE'S responsibility. Don't leave it to someone else.
Nothing is more important to us 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.
Lincolnshire have a safeguarding children’s board – LSCP - who deal with all serious child protection concerns where a child is considered to be at risk of significant harm. Their website can be accessed at
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, please contact the school's Designated Lead for Child Protection, Mrs B Rooney, Head Teacher, or in her absence, Mrs. C Hazlehurst, Senior Teacher.
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.

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.
