A married deputy headteacher and a science teacher have been suspended after a student saw them having sex on a desk.

It is claimed Judith Ramsdale, 44, and head of chemistry Paul Bland, 42, had sex while students were on a revision day.

The pupil is alleged to have caught the teachers – who are both married – in the act after being asked to retrieve material from the school’s English department,

The teachers are reported to have been suspended while an investigation gets underway at Haslingden School in Rossendale, Lancashire.




A source said: ‘A pupil saw them and ran back to the class to tell his teacher, who initially didn’t believe him.

‘But there are rumours of it being caught on CCTV. It’s the talk of every school in the area.’

Mr Bland, who lives with his wife Rebecca, 42, and his three children in Bury, confirmed that he had been suspended.
