Inspired Education Holdings Limited (‘Inspired’)
Modern Slavery Act Statement
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Inspired has taken during the financial year ending 31st August 2023 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in any part of our business and our supply chains.

Inspired is committed to providing its workers safe, legal employment in a stimulating and rewarding environment. We are opposed to any form of slavery and human trafficking (Modern Slavery) and strive to ensure that it is prevented from occurring in our business and in our supply chains.
Inspired aims to carry out all its business in full compliance with applicable laws and internationally recognised human rights standards in every location in which we operate.
Our Policies and Training
Inspired has a number of internal policies and provides a range of training aimed at ensuring that we always conduct business in an ethical and transparent manner. All employees and directors are required to comply with these policies.
In the context of preventing Modern Slavery, these include various human resources policies that govern recruitment, equal opportunities and diversity in our workplaces, and include procedures such as conducting background checks on staff to ensure the validity and authenticity of applications.
We regularly review these policies to ensure that they remain appropriate and consistent with any changes in legislation and best practice.
Given the nature of our business, we do not have an extensive supply chain network. Our supply chains include recruitment agencies; cleaning, catering, transportation, property fit out and maintenance service providers; and providers of teaching materials, IT equipment and technology.
Inspired recognises that it is vital to preserve the highest standards of integrity and transparency within its supply chains, so that those employed within them are not exposed to any form of exploitation. We are selective in our choice of suppliers and conduct appropriate due diligence checks. It is noted however that our suppliers may have their own complex supply chains, and it is not practicable for us to have direct oversight or management of the working conditions of each supplier.
