Clough and Risegate Community Primary School

Clough and Risegate Community Primary School, maintained by Lincolnshire County Council, is for boys and girls between the ages of five and eleven.  Children will normally be admitted into full time education here in the September following their fourth birthday. The Published Admission Number ( PAN ) for our school is 13, which is the maximum number of places available in each year group. Details of all admission procedures, including mid - year applications, can be found via the following link to the County Council website. Parents are also welcome to contact the school directly for further information.

The school originates from the 1870's when the government made education for children between the ages of five and fourteen compulsory in England and Wales. During this time, many hundreds of primary schools were built and were staffed in a variety of ways, often depending on the size of the school and the population of the local area. Our school was originally led by Mr Charles Quarmby, the 'Certified Master' and admitted its first pupils on June 18th,1877. There were 9 children taken in on this first day and Mr Quarmby's eldest son, Frederick, occupies pride of place as the first pupil in the admissions book. The family lived in the school house called 'The Master's House' which is now home to our school library, offices and kitchen. Within its first year, the school had admitted no fewer than 172 children.

Over the years, the school has changed considerably. Although retaining the original Victorian building, further classrooms have been added and the facilities both indoors and out are very much in keeping with the demands of the 21st century. Parents unfamiliar with the school environment are welcome to make arrangements to have a look around.

We aim to:
Create a happy and secure community in which everyone feels valued and respected, with equal opportunities for all.
Promote positively the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of all children, always with a sense of pride, purpose and self motivation.
Help children develop lively, enquiring minds by providing an imaginative, inspiring curriculum so that they can flourish.
Establish an effective and constructive partnership between home, school and the community.

We produced the following school motto which is embedded in all we do.

Our Community Primary School Motto is:


Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do here at Clough and Risegate Community Primary School. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
We are a very proud, small, rural primary school, where the family ethos, positive attitudes and good behaviour are reflected throughout.

Our children are at the centre of our vision and through shared aspirations we aim for everyone to meet their greatest potential. We believe in providing opportunities for all to become confident and self-motivated with a passion for learning.

At Clough and Risegate we foster a caring environment, promoting consideration and appreciation for others. We spend time developing self esteem, self discipline and independence.

As a school we take pride in developing the social, moral, spiritual and cultural education of all children. We closely follow our school's 9 SMART TARGETS, which we celebrate and share. Parents are always welcome in school. They are encouraged to discuss openly any concerns and to play an active part in the life of the school.

Together we aim to develop the full potential of every child. We are proud of our children and our committed staff provide them with a good education, inspiring all learners.
