Case against South Wales teacher "not proven"
ALL charges have been found ‘not proven’ against a former teacher accused of bullying and mistreatment of a pupil.
Philip Meredith told of his relief at the verdict, saying the last three years had been a ‘living hell’ and said he hopes to return to teaching after all eight charges were found to have been not proven.
The ex-Ty-Sign Primary School teacher appeared before a professional conduct committee hearing of the General Teaching Council for Wales (GTCW) in Cardiff.
He was alleged to have bullied a pupil, sat on a large bean bag while the pupil was underneath, and to have had restrained the same pupil resulting in a red mark on his arm.
