I was arrested on suspicion of a sexual assault on my goddaughter. I was questioned, released on bail and then 6 days later it was dropped. I was never charged. I am a teacher although the incident was unrelated to my job/place of work.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX with everything. I was telephoned by the police asking me to attend the police station to answer some questions regarding an allegation made against me but when I arrived I was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.
It's been 20 mins, I'm waiting for an answer.
Thank you very much indeed Jo, this is very useful to me. Just one other question if you don't mind. I have taken the decision to leave the teaching profession in view of all the stress this incident had caused me. I am now looking to pursue an alternative career in financial services (my previous career before teaching) and have been in contact with my previous employer to ask what sort of reference I am likely to expect from him. He has stated that his reference will be "factual comments" based on the job I did at his school, however he mentions that he is "required to mention that an allegation of a child protection nature was made" (even though the allegation had nothing to do with my teaching job). My question Jo is this: Is he required to mention the allegation on a reference when the job I am applying for has nothing to do with working with children? I can totally understand that this disclosure would have to be made if I was applying for another teaching job but I am not and I have made him aware that I have now left the teaching profession. It just seems unfair that he will be mentioning this on a reference which will ultimately affect my chances of getting the job I want. Thanks.
Yes if you could that would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help.
