A FOUL mouthed teacher who swore at pupils, threw a piece of wood across a classroom and told pupils he thought the deputy head was a vampire has been banned from the country’s classrooms.
The ban follows Teaching Agency disciplinary panel find that he was guilty of “unacceptable professional conduct” whilst employed as a teacher at Witton Park High School, Buncer Lane, Blackburn, between 2008 and 2010.
In a decision just announced, Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove banned Frank White, 61, from teaching for at least the next four years.
