Carol Hill was suspended from Great Tey Primary School last summer
A dinner lady who told a parent his seven-year-old daughter had been attacked at school in Essex has lost her job after a disciplinary hearing.
Carol Hill worked at Great Tey Primary school, near Colchester, and was sacked for a breach of confidentiality.
Ms Hill told the girl's father she had seen other pupils tie up his daughter and hit her with a rope.
The girl has now left the school and the parents said they were "disgusted" by the way Ms Hill had been treated.
The disciplinary hearing took place last week and Ms Hill was told earlier that she had been dismissed.
She now has 10 days to lodge an appeal against the decision.
The school said it would not comment on the detail of the hearing but reiterated their priority is to provide the "best possible education" for its pupils.
