A TEACHER has been banned after sex with a pupil on a plane.

Physics teacher Wilson denied the allegations but was found guilty by the panel who found she had shown "dishonesty, a lack of insight and sexual misconduct".

There was no evidence to suggest that the teacher was acting under duress'.

The tryst only came to light when another student heard about it and threatened to tell the school unless Miss Wilson engaged in sexual activity with him.

At the hearing, the National College for Teaching and Leadership disciplinary panel found that Pupil A to be a credible, reliable witness and agreed with his version of events.

Miss Wilson was struck off following the hearing.

The school launched an investigation and Miss Wilson was dismissed in May 2016.

"Pupil A gave evidence that Miss Wilson was intoxicated and that he had himself drunk approximately five miniature bottles of wine on the flight".

"The panel has found that Miss Wilson engaged in sexual activity with Pupil A on one occasion, including oral sex and sexual intercourse".

Polly O'Malley, chairman of the professional conduct panel, said: 'There was evidence that the teacher's actions were deliberate and continued for a significant length of time despite her understanding that her behaviour was inappropriate.

"Furthermore, in view of the seriousness of the allegations found proved against her, I have decided that Miss Eleanor Wilson shall not be entitled to apply for restoration of her eligibility to teach".

An NSPCC spokesman said: "As a teacher, Wilson was trusted by parents, her school and the local community to prioritise pupils' welfare and wellbeing, but instead she abused this trust for her own sexual gratification".

"Whilst she did express remorse as to the impact of her actions on Pupil A and his family, Miss Wilson demonstrated herself to be more concerned with the impact of her dismissal from the school on her own career and personal life".

Miss Wilson was reported to the police, however it was not known last night whether officers had taken any action against her.

The NCTL said in a report of the panel's hearing: "The conduct of Wilson fell significantly short of the standards expected of the profession".
