Police ‘review’ Saltus report on teacher

Police are examining a report that found a former Saltus Grammar School teacher sexually assaulted pupils decades ago.

A police spokesman confirmed yesterday that the BPS “is currently reviewing the contents of the report”.

The spokesman refused to say if an investigation into the allegations had been launched.

The spokesman also declined to comment on whether the BPS had been in touch with police abroad about the male teacher, who lives overseas.

The news came a day after Saltus revealed an independent investigation had found that the former teacher had engaged in “sexually inappropriate touching of pupils and grooming behaviour” in the 1970s and 1980s.

The private school added that the teacher's behaviour included “showing favouritism to some students, while being unduly punitive to others, instilling fear and uncertainty in his victims”.

The investigation also found that “an allegation appears to have come to the school's attention and the teacher departed shortly thereafter”.

The seven-month inquiry, which started in February, was conducted by American-based T&M Protection Resources.

The school said a total of 21 interviews were conducted, “including some on more than one occasion”.

The investigation also included evidence from 12 former pupils at what was at the time an all-boys school at the primary level.
