female pupil's lipsA teacher at a posh boarding school has been banned after planting a sexually motivated kiss on a female pupils lips. Timothy Pearce-Slade, 65, walked the student home, kissed her, and told her dont be silly when she protested, a professional conduct panel heard. The physiology and cell biology teacher had been employed at 25,000-a-year Bellerbys College, in Cambridge from 2001. The specialist science and technology boarding school charges 8,580-per-term to sit A-levels. However, a National College for Teaching and Leadership professional conduct panel, found that there was a serious departure from the standards expected from a teacher in the sexually-motivated kiss. He was banned for a minimum of two years, but told he could reapply to teach after April 2017. The panel said it was an isolated incident and because of this did not equate to serious sexual misconduct.

ould often walk Student A home from school and that he would often kiss her cheek in parting. On 5 January 2004, Mr Pearce-Slade, offered to walk Student A home after she had been feeling unwell. When they arrived at Student As home, Mr Pearce-Slade admits that he said to Student A ...I am going to give you a kiss on the lips. Student A protested and tried to move her face to make it more difficult for him to do so. However, Mr Pearce-
Slade admits in the statement of agreed facts that he held her shoulders and said words to the effect of dont be silly. Mr Pearce-Slade admits his kissing of Student A on the lips amounted to non-consensual contact. Exclusive: The schools fees a

duct which affected the well-being of Student A. The panel has seen evidence that Mr Pearce-Slade received a written warning for kissing Student A, which he readily admitted in full and for which he was very remorseful. Paul Heathcote, who made the judgement, said: The panel have found his actions to be deliberate and have seen no evidence to suggest he was acting under duress. They have noted his 40 year teaching career and the positive character statements supplied by former colleagues. Nevertheless the panel have concluded that the public interest considerations outweigh those of Mr Pearce-Slade and have recommended that a prohibition order is an appropriate and proportionate sanction. I agree with their recommendation. Warning: Pearce-Slade p

They have recommended that Mr Pearce-Slade be allowed to apply to have the order set aside after a minimum period of 2 years has passed. I agree with their recommendation. This means that Mr Timothy Pearce-Slade is prohibited from teaching indefinitely and cannot teach in any school, sixth form college, relevant youth accommodation or childrens home in England. He may apply for the prohibition order to be set aside, but not until 20 April 2017, two years from the date of this order at the earliest. The teacher also faced a number of other allegations, which were not proven by the panel, including that he made alterations to a students trousers, turning up the hem, while she was wearing them and that he lent a student a bike 香港特马王资料113期 and then watched her riding it while wearing hipster trousers. Other allegations that he had hugged former students were also not proven. The panel found that Mr Pearce-Slades behaviour was not best practice but did not constitute unprofessional conduct.
