Hunter Teacher Dismissed and Charged Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct With a Student

A teacher at All Saints College Maitland has been terminated and had his teaching credentials revoked following serious allegations of sexual misconduct involving a student. The 39-year-old male teacher, charged by NSW Police, has been relieved of his duties, as confirmed by the acting principal, Nathan Mansfield. The allegations, which include nine counts of sexual intercourse with a person under care between the ages of 17 and 18, led to the teacher being granted conditional bail, pending a court appearance at the end of the month.

Acting Principal Mansfield emphasized the school’s commitment to addressing allegations of abuse seriously and promptly. The school administration was promptly notified of the allegations and reported them to the appropriate authorities on the day they were made aware. The accused teacher was placed on administrative leave the following day, a step that was lifted recently. Additionally, a separate allegation involving another individual is under investigation, with appropriate actions to be taken based on the findings.

The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle maintains a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse and prioritizes safeguarding the well-being of children and vulnerable individuals. Parents and members of the school community are encouraged to communicate any concerns they may have, while support services have been made available through the Diocesan Employee Assistance Program and the Office of Safeguarding. The Office of the Children’s Guardian, overseeing child safety in the state, confirmed receipt of reports regarding the alleged incidents, ensuring regulatory oversight in the matter.
