The girls are gagging for it or what not to say to pupils at the prom.

    Sould teachers be drinking at all at these events? Surley he was there to supervise?

    Also, a teacher REALLY shouldn't be viewing pupils this way.

    from the panel pretty much sums him up. Who knows? He may post on here about "my references are no good".
    It's likely he'll be looking for alternative employment.

    He had left his job at the school holding the Prom, I wonder if he was able to take up his new post.

    Don't have anything to do with this foul prom culture. It's mostly an obscenity and no place for a teacher.

    A nasty American import like Halloween and our PM.

    Halloween was OK before it was turned into some commercial monstrosity.

    Mischief night was one of the highlights of the year when I was a nipper ;-)

    It does beggar belief when you have teachers scared to be on FB no matter how strict their privacy settings, HTs warning staff not to attend any social event if a pupil is present (ie if you are attending a wedding celebration and a pupil is an invitee you should leave) and so on.
    I would say that if staff have to pay to go to a "prom" then they are as equally guests as the students, though I do admit I 'policed' the ones I organised.
    However he probably got away with this as it was seen as 'laddish' behaviour.... would be interested to know the gender of his HT.

    Don't believe FB and it's privacy settings.

    "Just over a month ago, Facebook put adult performer and director Julie Simone through a "real names" nightmare when it changed her performer account to show her legal name -- and locked her out of it for 30 days (link NSFW)."

    I have heard of people in the trans community having their "alter ego" name changed to their legal name in a similar way to the above. Way to go FaceBook :mad:

    Who brought the action against this man ? Who thought he needed punishing ? According to his own words he was already on his way out / sacked. A chip on his shoulder with alcohol ?

    It was the professional conduct panel.

    The PCP is there to see if you are fit to teach, full stop. Not fit to teach at a particular school.

    At the girls' school I worked at for 20+ years I would always refer to non uniform days as 'dress like a slapper' day.

    It's a shame that there isn't a similar body for Ministers and Secretaries of Education.
