Teacher's constructive dismissal claim wait

A TEACHER who says she was forced to resign from a Woodcote school will have to wait a month to find out the result of her legal claim.

Rachel Ashley quit her role as a housemistress at the Oratory School in September 2012 because she says her complaints over the “appalling” behaviour of students were ignored.

She claims one pupil, known as Boy A, filmed himself killing animals, including cats and birds, while an attack on another boy, called Boy B, was “covered up”.

The independent all-boys Catholic school has denied the allegations.

Mrs Ashley is suing the school for constructive dismissal. An employment tribunal in Reading heard evidence from both sides over four days last week before the hearing was adjourned for four weeks for a decision.
