A married teacher who had an intimate relationship with a primary school pupil he called his “first true love” has been deregistered. – Jo Gilbert, The Press, 13 July 2010 (full story)
It seems it there was also “[…] at least one intimate physical encounter, although they did not have sex”.
It’s good he’s been deregistered. I don’t understand how a fully grown man can believe that a girl who isn’t even in her teens yet (!!) is his first true love. I feel sorry for his wife and for all the men out there who actually want to get into teaching children or who already are. Male teachers like this give all the other ones a bad rep.
