Our policies

Inspire is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its students.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. All members of staff (paid and unpaid) are required to report any suspected abuse and be aware of the appropriate reporting and support procedures.

If you have a concern that you feel is an emergency, for example someone is at an immediate and/or imminent risk please call 999.

Inspire believes that any children (those under the age of 18), learners and vulnerable adults should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults and to keep them safe from abuse, neglect and exploitation. We are committed to practice in a way that protects them.

All relevant staff who have contact with children, learners and vulnerable adults, will have undergone and have satisfied all the necessary recruitment and vetting checks, including the need for an Enhanced DBS Disclosure (including Children’s Barred List check). A new Enhanced DBS Disclosure will be undertaken every 3 years for staff to ensure compliance with the providers to whom our staff come into contact with.

Prevent policy

To view our full prevent policy document, please click here.

This Policy is intended to provide a framework for dealing with issues relating to vulnerability, radicalisation and exposure to extreme views and sets out our beliefs, strategies and procedures to protect vulnerable individuals from being radicalised or exposed to extremist views, by identifying who they are and promptly providing them with support.

We believe that it is possible to intervene to protect people who are vulnerable. Early intervention is vital. Staff must have the confidence to challenge, the confidence to intervene and ensure that we have strong safeguarding practices based on the most up-to-date guidance and best practice.
