A York primary school teacher has appeared in court charged with four counts of voyeurism, some of which involve children.

The city council stress the man was suspended immediately and there's no evidence of any physical contact.

Parents have had a letter sent home, if you have not had a letter then the case does not involve your child's school.

The man involved has been remanded and will appear at York Crown Court next month.

Eoin Rush, Assistant Director of Children’s Specialist Services, City of York Council, said: “I can confirm that a York Primary School teacher has appeared at York Magistrates Court charged with a number of voyeurism offences, some of which relate to children.

“Due to reporting restrictions imposed by the Court we are unable to name the person or the school. However, parents with children at the school concerned have received a letter from the City of York Council. As such, parents are advised that if they have not received a letter the matter does not relate to their child’s school.

“The teacher was suspended immediately after suspicions were raised. Parents of children at the school have been informed that there is no evidence to suggest that the offences involve any physical contact with children.

“The police have confirmed that enquiries are ongoing. If as a result of these enquiries any further concerns are uncovered they will be in contact with anyone affected directly.”
