TEACHERS' PERSONAL FILES TO BE CHECKED

Teachers' records will be re-examined and any past complaints about sexual conduct will be scrutinised after a hard-hitting report was adopted yesterday in Wales, reports the Western Mail (p6).

The report of the review headed by West Glamorgan CC chief executive Gerry Corless follows the seven year jail sentence handed last month to former Neath primary school teacher Robert Lippiatt who was found guilty of indecently assaulting pupils in his care.

The review team wants teachers' records re-examined so any complaints and allegations in the past which may have been forgotten about could be reappraised.

NUT's Wales secretary Dan Roberts said yesterday: 'In my opinion if allegations of sexual misconduct are on teachers' files and these have not been investigated then they should have been.'

The review was carried out by a team of senior education, social services, health and police officials.
