A secondary school teacher in Norfolk has been charged with a series of sex offences, including possessing indecent images and sexual activity with under-age girls.
Brett Meeds, 28, was suspended from Northgate High in Dereham immediately after the allegations were made.
He faces 10 charges, including three counts of engaging in sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15 and further accusations of abusing his position of trust.
He was granted conditional bail and was due to appear in Norwich Crown Court this week.
John Smith, headteacher of Northgate High, said: "As soon as allegations relating to these charges were made against him, we immediately suspended Mr Meeds, and have worked closely with Norfolk Constabulary to assist them in any way we can with their investigation.
"I have written to all parents at the school to inform them of this news and let them know that we have support in place at the school should any pupil, parent, member of staff or governor require it." dm.
