Safeguarding

Inspire Learning Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We ensure that all our employment practices reflect this commitment.

Each school has its own Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and at least one Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.  The school DSL is the person responsible for all safeguarding and child protection matters within that setting.
