A teacher who hit pupils with a ruler and dragged them across the classroom has been sent to an anger-management course.

Teachers Council chairman Kenneth Johnston said the teacher, whose name is suppressed, had just missed being struck off the teachers' register.

She received six complaints from parents from 2005 to 2011, all about inappropriate disciplining of "very young" children.

This included pulling ears, and slapping and pinching.

The teacher resigned before a disciplinary process could take place.

The school later re-employed her as a relief teacher, but she went on to get another complaint for manhandling a child to the ground.
