Teacher's tribunal claim dismissed

A teacher in West Yorkshire has lost her employment tribunal claim for unfair dismissal.


According to the BBC, the 41-year-old was dismissed after writing a  “racy” novel featuring pupils and fellow teachers from her school and publishing it on a self-publishing website.


The BBC reports that she had written the book as a way of engaging with some of her more difficult pupils.  A school governor, however, claimed that the book had brought the school into disrepute. 


The unfair dismissal claim was dismissed by the employment tribunal.
