The Telegraph is reporting that a Religious Education teacher who went on a date with a pupil and kissed her has been allowed to continue working in the same school…
George Moore, 30, admitted bombarding the teenager, known as Pupil A, with dozens of emails including 20 messages on one day.
The married father-of-one even met up with the girl during the summer holidays in 2012 and in August he took her on a date where he kissed her.
Despite admitting seducing the girl he has been allowed to keep his job following a disciplinary hearing.
Mr Moore first met the girl who was a pupil at The Abbey School, Berkshire in January 2012.
He was found guilty of professional misconduct following a hearing in Coventry.
The Secretary of State has spared him a classroom ban after hearing he was a “good teacher.”
…Head teacher Ken Moffat said Moore, who started at the school in September 2010, said he was a “very good teacher” and would be “devastated” if he was struck off.
The panel ruled that a prohibition order would “not be a proportionate sanction” and said he was allowed to continue teaching.
