At Whitburn Church of England Academy we are absolutely committed to providing a caring, safe and supportive environment for every pupil. We will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of our pupils. In cases where the academy has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, we always follow the South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Board’s procedures and inform Children’s Services Social Care of any concerns.

The Designated Teacher is Mrs Tennet and the Deputy is Miss Kassapian. The Designated Governor is Mr L Williamson.  In addition, all members of the Senior Management Team and the Head of Sixth Form are trained as Designated Teachers.
