NSPCC statement: “Jeremy Forrest’s relationship with this pupil was wrong and the sentence passed today indicates society’s disapproval of teachers abusing their position of trust.
There were many warning signals that his relationship went well beyond what you would expect between a pupil and teacher.
“Some of his colleagues knew about the unhealthy relationship but did not intervene to prevent it escalating to abduction. This was patently wrong because it appears they were unwilling to challenge Forrest effectively and did not protect the welfare and protection of a child.
