Teacher, 40, told he can go back to the classroom despite telling 14-year-old schoolgirl that he was watching porn

A teacher has been told he can return to the classroom in just two years despite performing a series of sexually explicit actions with a string of young pupils. This is from the Daily Mail…

In one instance, Gregory Hallam inflated a condom covered in baby oil and asked a boy to rub it until it burst, a disciplinary tribunal heard.

On another occasion, the 40-year-old talked about porn to a pupil, aged 14, who he had befriended on Facebook, a report into his conduct said.

And an investigation into Hallam’s behaviour also found he used school computers to access pornography.

He was found guilty of ‘unacceptable professional conduct’ and not maintaining ‘appropriate boundaries’ with pupils while teaching at Oriel High School at Gorleston, Norfolk, and banned him from the classroom.

But despite a report concluding that ‘Mr Hallam’s actions tend to indicate a deep-seated attitude that could lead to harmful behaviour’a decision by an Education Department official, acting on behalf of Education Secretary Michael Gove, paves the way for him to return teaching after just two years.

At the end of the two year ban Hallam will be entitled to apply to return to teaching.

But he will first have to convince another panel from the National College for Teaching and Leaders that he is fit to return.
