Drunk in lessons and brows­ing on web for sex toys teacher banned

Midweek Sport - - TELEVISION X -

A WOMAN spe­cial­needs school teacher who showed up for classes DRUNK and used her work lap­top to browse the web for sex toys has been banned from the pro­fes­sion.

Jill Collins, 56, who taught at Cas­tle­don School, in Wick­ford, Es­sex, blamed her slurred speech on mi­graine med­i­ca­tion – but failed a po­lice breath test af­ter be­ing es­corted from the grounds.

A Na­tional Col­lege for Teach­ing and Lead­er­ship panel heard se­nior staff checked her emails af­ter con­cerns and found sev­eral in­ap­pro­pri­ate mes­sages sent to her part­ner, in­clud­ing links to the Ann Sum­mers web­site.

An­other email to a porn web­site ap­peared to be an at­tempt to can­cel her mem­ber­ship.

The first al­le­ga­tion against Collins arose on May 18, 2015, when she was said to be drunk in charge of pupils.

Head­teacher Philippa Hol­l­i­day told the panel “it was ap­par­ent that she was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol” dur­ing a morn­ing meet­ing.

A fur­ther al­le­ga­tion that Collins viewed dat­ing web­sites on her work lap­top dur­ing class time was not up­held be­cause her brows­ing his­tory showed she only used them out of school hours.
