A teacher has been suspended after admitting watching pornography in his classroom.

In a Teachers' Disciplinary Tribunal decision, released today, the teacher had his teaching certificate suspended for three months for serious misconduct.

He had also been accused by a pupil of masturbating in his classroom during a lunchbreak but denied this allegation.

Tribunal chairman Kenneth Johnston said it was not the tribunal's place to resolve this factual conflict.

The accessing of pornography was enough to suspend the licence without proving the claim of masturbation, Johnston said.

The teacher has since left the school where he committed the acts last year.

The teacher's name and the name of the school were suppressed.
