A primary school teacher from Scotland was sacked after allegedly groping a colleague and asking to ‘motorboat’ her while on a school trip.

The teacher, whose identity has been kept anonymous by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS), was accused of groping his colleague without consent.

In an email to the GTCS, the teacher, who was not present at the hearing, said he touched his colleague and tried to kiss her breasts.

He argues that he touched his colleague ‘with consent’ while the pair were eating chocolate in a rented room in June 2017.

However, the female teacher who he allegedly assaulted claims she had not given her consent. 

Speaking today, the female teacher recalled the incident, saying: ‘He moved and sat beside me, this wasn’t unusual for him.

‘He was in [my room] for chocolate and I had my iPad with me so he put on Star Wars.’

The woman said she took off her jumper, after which, she alleges her colleague said: ‘I want to motorboat them’, before removing her top and kissing her left breast.

She said she had ‘no idea how long’ her colleague allegedly stroked her nipple and kissed her breast. 

The female teacher said her colleague had apologised the next day, but made a sexual innuendo in front of their schoolchildren later in the day. 

She said: ‘I said I would I like a Kit Kat, then when I said that he said ‘I’ve got something chunky for you’.’

In a statement, the HR officer for the school the two teachers work at said: ‘While on a school trip with year six pupils, the teacher asked witness two if she had any chocolate.

‘They went back to her room where they watched a film on an iPad.

‘After feeling hot, she took off her outer fleece.

‘The teacher then asked if he could motorboat her.’

The HR officer also explained that motorboating is the act of blowing a raspberry between a woman’s breasts.

The statement continued by saying the male teacher asked to ‘suck on it’ before grabbing the breasts of his female colleague – who had been left frozen with shock.

‘The teacher then said it was an act of stupidity and that he believed when she took off her fleece that it was consent,’ the statement said.  

Following an internal investigation at the time, the teacher was dismissed.

The teacher has also been accused of gifting another female colleague a rubber penis as part of a Secret Santa which he admitted to.

This was also reported to the school according to the HR officer who deemed it: ‘inappropriate’.

The hearing continues.
