A science teacher at a Norfolk school has been charged with a series of sex offences against under-age girls.
Brett Meeds, 28, from Orton Goldhay in Peterborough, is due to appear before Norwich Crown Court on 1 July.
He is to answer 10 charges including five counts of sexual activity with a girl aged between 13 and 17 and two of possessing indecent images.
Mr Meeds was suspended from Northgate High School in Dereham when the allegations came to light.
He was granted bail but banned from travelling to Norfolk or making contact with anyone under the age of 18 via the internet.
Letter to parents
John Smith, head teacher at Northgate High, said: "I can confirm that a member of our teaching staff, Brett Meeds, has been charged with a number of sexual offences.
"As soon as allegations relating to these charges were made against him we immediately suspended Mr Meeds and have worked closely with Norfolk Constabulary to assist them in any way we can with their investigation.
"I have written to all parents at the school to inform them of this news and let them know that we have support in place at the school should any pupil, parent, member of staff or governor require it."
