Teacher loses dismissal claim

A TEACHER who claimed she was forced to resign has had her claim for constructive dismissal thrown out.

Rachel Ashley quit as housemother at the Oratory School in Woodcote in September 2012, claiming her concerns about the behaviour of pupils at the independent boys’ Catholic school were not taken seriously.

She claimed that one pupil filmed himself killing animals and that an attack on another boy was “covered up”.

The school denied the allegations during a tribunal in Reading last month where headmaster Clive Dytor and deputy head Tom Hennessy gave evidence.

In a statement, Michael Hasslacher, chairman of governors, said: “The tribunal was satisfied that the school acted at all times by taking professional decisions which were in the best interests of the welfare of young people in its care.
