Safeguarding – For Parents and Carers
Welcome to our section on Safeguarding specifically for parents and carers. If you are a student at College you can access all the relevant information you need on the College’s VLE – Moodle.
At CCAD we take safeguarding our students very seriously. However, we recognise it is a daunting and often confusing area and as parents and carers you have a huge responsibility in keeping your children safe and ensuring their well-being. Sometimes we all need help and advice on the challenges faced as parents and carers. Hopefully the links here will help support you in supporting your children and guide you on what action to take if something is concerning you.
If you have any further queries or require any further information please contact one of the College’s Safeguarding Officers, whose details can be found here
