A paedophile who taught in York has had his sentence increased from six to thirteen months.
Richard Arthur Oldham, who now lives in Devon, was jailed for six months in September.
Police described him as "every parent's worst nightmare" and found more than 2,000 indecent images of children on his computer.
He admitted a total of 22 child abuse charges at Leeds Crown Court.
The Court of Appeal ruled this morning his sentence should be more than doubled at a hearing earlier.
