School's zero tolerance

A DONCASTER school where a teacher was suspended for "unacceptable professional conduct" says it has a zero tolerance policy to such behaviour.

Michael Bamford was dismissed from Fullerton House School, Denaby, in November 2008.

He was suspended for two years by the General Teaching Council after a disciplinary hearing was told he was rude to other staff and swore in front of pupils.

Sue Walker, HR manager at the Hesley Group which runs the school for autistic pupils, said: "We take allegations of unprofessional conduct extremely seriously and operate a zero tolerance policy.

"We are committed to providing a professional working environment where all staff can feel safe and confident in the work that they do."

The school employs 275 staff.
