TV teacher banned from the classroom

THORNHILL: One of the stars of reality TV show Educating Yorkshire has been banned from the classroom.

Beverley James, 57, was ruled to have tampered with attendance records at Thornhill Community Academy.

The National College of Teaching and Learning found she altered 600 details so that they were inaccurate or misleading.

Associate deputy headteacher Mrs James committed the offences from September 2014, to March 2015.

She was banned from working indefinitely but can apply to have the order lifted in five years.

She denied the charge but was found guilty by a disciplinary panel of professional misconduct.
