Jonathan Storey (Instructed by the National Education Union) has yesterday secured the acquittal of a primary school teacher who had faced allegations of inappropriate and sexually motivated conduct with a male pupil in his class.
The teacher, who faced a life ban from teaching if the allegations had been proved, was found not guilty by a Professional Conduct Panel of the Teaching Regulation Agency after a hearing lasting three days (and a prior case management hearing in which Jonathan successfully argued a number of points of law). Having spent 18 months out of teaching he is now free to return to the classroom.
Jonathan is a specialist practitioner in the field of professional regulation and works regularly with teachers, nurses, doctors, and other professionals facing disciplinary proceedings at all stages from initial referral to appeal. His approach combines persuasive advocacy with highly personalised and compassionate advice and expert support throughout the life of a case.
