Teacher Removed From Teaching Register Over Sellotape Allegations

Share this article


A teacher has been found guilty of professional misconduct after sellotape was placed across the mouths of five fifth class students.

The teacher, who can’t be named, has now been removed from the Teaching Council’s register and can’t teach.

This case - which was heard last November - was the first time a teacher’s conduct was brought before a fitness to practice inquiry.

The five girls at the centre of the case said there was messing and laughter during maths class and the teacher told them to 'whisssht' and threatened to put sellotape over their mouths.

It is then alleged the teacher did put tape on the mouths of some of the girls, or they did it themselves as they felt they had to.

She has now been found guilty of professional misconduct and has been taken off the register so can’t teach.

The teacher – who denied the allegations - can apply to be returned to the register in a year but this isn’t an automatic decision.
