A TEACHER under arrest for inciting sexual activity with a child has been rebailed.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was due to answer police bail on November 20.

He has not yet been charged, having been arrested for the first time in June, and he will answer bail again on January 8.

Canon Slade suspended the teacher following the arrest, and said it related to “inappropriate communications with a pupil”.

The arrest marked the third police investigation into the sexual behaviour of teachers at the Church of England school in the past three years.

Andrew Welsh was given a 14-month suspended jail term for six counts of sexual activity with a child, after being discovered under a pupil’s bed by her mother.

In April, 2012, science teacher Andrew Ward was jailed for downloading images of child abuse.
