A BRIGHOUSE teacher has been suspended from teaching for five months by the General Teaching Council (GTC).
In a newly-published decision the GTC says that Peter Whitburn Bailey, who taught at the William Henry Smith School at Brighouse, was “guilty of unacceptable professional conduct” during a period from 2006 to March this year.
They say he acted dishonestly in that he used the school account to pay for fuel for his own vehicle and also ordered mountaineering and other specialised equipment through the school account for his own personal use.
The school is a non-maintained residential special school, which provides high quality education and care for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
On receiving a GTC disciplinary order, a teacher has a right to lodge an appeal with the High Court within 28 days.
