Kelvin Loraine, a maths teacher who had worked at Hetton School, struck up a relationship with a 15-year-old girl after meeting her in an online chatroom two years ago.
Loraine allowed the girl to send him between 30 and 40 naked pictures of herself.
A National College for Teaching and Leadership panel was told how he instructed and watched the girl perform sex acts via Skype. The panel was also told how he let her watch him perform an act on himself.
The teacher, 31, admitted inviting the teenager to sign a sex slave contract with him.
On November 30, Loraine arranged to meet the girl in a hotel in Plymouth and travelled from his home in County Durham to have sex.
The teacher told the panel, sitting in Coventry, that the sexual activity took place after the girl’s 16th birthday…
The panel noted that Loraine had a previous good history as a teacher and had expressed regret for his behaviour.
However, it concluded that his actions were planned over a period of time and were therefore deliberate.
It said his behaviour could have harmed the girl, known as Child A, adding: “The panel is satisfied that it is necessary for a prohibition order to be imposed in order to protect pupils and other members of the public, maintain public confidence in the teaching profession and to declare and uphold proper standards of conduct…”
