Following news (here) that a Somerset primary school teacher has admitted filming indecent photograph of girls in his class FACT have issued the following statement.
“The actions of Nigel Leat are deplorable. He has not only abused his position of trust and let down his profession but he is also responsible for psychologically damaging the wellbeing of dozens of pupils and shaking their trust in teachers and men in particular. The damage he has caused to these children and their families must be incalculable.
He has also caused incalculable damage to our movement and all those falsely accused carers and teachers who are labouring to clear their names, and to be believed.
This is a shocking case and it right that the judge imposed an indefinite sentence upon him.”
