Supply teacher banned from the classroom after turning up drunk and slurring her words on her first day

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that a local primary school teacher has been banned from the classroom after turning up drunk.

Hannah Elizabeth Day, 27, slurred her words while reading a story, while a water fight broke out between pupils after she left the room.

The supply teacher was also “unsteady”, “confused” and “swaying” on her first day at Our Lady and St Philomena’s Catholic Primary School in Fazakerley, a disciplinary hearing was told.

The National College for Teaching and Leadership heard that it was also alleged that she was playing Pacman on her mobile phone during the lesson – a claim which Ms Day denied.

Ms Day, who also “failed to control the noise levels in her classroom”, was banned from teaching in any school for two years.

She had been sent into the school as a supply teacher by Capita Education Resourcing. The ECHO understands she was only in the school for around two hours.

The panel said a ban should be imposed with “immediate effect”, adding that it had identified her as a “potential continuing risk”…
