For Parents and Carers

At Aylesbury College, we take great care to help your son or daughter settle in happily and quickly. For many parents, or others with responsibility for young people, it will be a new experience, too. We are sure you will be delighted to see how your son or daughter develops and grows in during their time at College. 

Safeguarding

Safeguarding looks at keeping children, young people and adults safe from a wide range of potential harm and looks at ways of preventing harm as well as acting to stop it. 

PREVENT is about supporting all our students and help to stop them from becoming involved in any form of extremist and/or terrorist activities.
