Peter Ward, who chaired the disciplinary hearing, said
Peter Ward, who chaired the disciplinary hearing, said: “The panel was satisfied that Mr. Aldridge’s conduct was totally contrary to the standards expected of the teaching profession.
“Teachers are in a privileged position of trust and Mr. Aldridge had abused his position.
The conduct of Mr. Aldridge was of the most serious and serious.
“Mr. Aldridge’s actions in committing the crimes had undoubtedly caused significant harm and suffering to the students who had been placed in his care.
The panel found that Mr. Aldridge’s behavior in committing the crimes would affect the public’s confidence in the teaching profession.
Furthermore, that public confidence in the profession would be seriously undermined if he were allowed to teach after his release from prison.
“In light of the findings of the panel against Mr. Aldridge, involving 25 counts of s*xual activity with students, there was a very strong public interest consideration regarding the protection of students given the serious and multiple findings of the activity s*xual with students.
The panel found that Mr. Aldridge’s actions had been calculated and deliberate. No mitigation documents were presented on behalf of Mr. Aldridge.
The documents presented to the panel did not indicate that Mr. Aldridge was remorseful or had shown understanding of his conduct.
The panel had no doubt that Mr. Aldridge’s misconduct was of the most serious kind and had been gross s*xual misconduct.
Bryan said: ‘The victim said his first s*xual encounter was ruined because he kept repeating’ I could go to prison for this. ‘
His first alleged victim told police that they had s*x every day and that she had a miscarriage with her son in Year 11.
Aldridge, father of two, from Southsea, Hamphire, denies s*xual activity with girls at Warblington School.
Prosecutor Robert Bryan told jurors that Aldridge
Prosecutor Robert Bryan told jurors that Aldridge had a “second secret phone” that he hid in his jacket pocket in his wardrobe.
He used his middle name ‘Jack’ as a code name on his secret phone, and two of his victims had the number stored on their phones as ‘Jack Ridge’ to protect his identity, the court heard. .
His alleged grooming began in 2007 after he gave a 15-year-old student, who cannot be named for legal reasons, her mobile number because she was having “problems at home.”
In kicking him out of the classroom for life today / yesterday, decision maker Alan Meyrick, for the Secretary of Education, said: “ There was no indication in the papers before the panel that Mr. Aldridge was sorry or had shown a understanding of their behavior. ”
In my opinion, the lack of insight means that there is a certain risk that this behavior will be repeated and this puts the future well-being of the students at risk.
