You Don’t Warn Teachers Not to Have Sex With Their Students



Can someone explain to me how a school invested with the responsibility of looking after the welfare of its students chose to warn a teacher 6 times not to be romantically involved with his student? Surely he should have been suspended straight away. Warnings are for late submissions of lesson planners or making a thoughtless comment in the classroom, not for having sex with your student!

Teacher Jeremy Forrest said a 15-year-old schoolgirl was lying about a sexual relationship when he spoke to his bosses, a court heard today.

The married teacher was challenged by assistant head Alicja Bobela, after pupils had raised suspicions with her, the jury heard.

Miss Bobela, responsible for child protection, said two schoolboys claimed the schoolgirl had told pals Forrest, 30, had been picking her up from work experience at another school.

Forrest was warned on six occasions about his relationship with the girl before being challenged by Miss Bobela Bishop at Bell CoE school, Eastbourne, East Sussex, on July 12 last year.

And he had twice been told to keep his distance and was banned from messaging her privately on Twitter, Lewes crown court heard.

Ms Bebola said: “He came to find me and he talked to me.

“He said that he did not know where this was coming from, ‘why was she telling people these lies,’ and what could he do, ‘why is she doing this to me?

“He meant the schoolgirl telling friends about what he was doing.”
