In South Wales, a headmaster and a woman teacher were allegedly recorded by a pupil making love behind the closed door of the head’s office, a disciplinary hearing was told today.
Head Graham Daniels, 51, and chemistry teacher Bethan Thomas, 37, face being struck off if found guilty of being overheard from outside closed door.
The camera phone’s ‘sex tape’ was then put online by pupils.
A disciplinary hearing was launched into the “moans and panting” from behind the closed door in married Mr Daniel’s office. The 30-second tape was recorded on a camera phone outside the headmaster’s office and posted onto YouTube.
The school received a complaint and the tape was examined by governors and education chiefs. Both Mr Daniels and Miss Thomas resigned from 750-pupil Bryntawe Comprehensive School in Swansea, South Wales, after the tape emerged.
Now both could be struck off the teaching register if found guilty of “unacceptable professional conduct” at the Cardiff disciplinary hearing of the Education Workforce Committee.
