A 48-year-old Liverpool schoolteacher has denied having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old pupil.
Elvira Fairhurst, of Mossley Hill, pleaded not guilty at Liverpool Crown Court to eight counts of sexual activity with a child.
She is charged with having sex with the boy seven times between January and May last year, and a further sex offence in December 2004.
The case was adjourned on Friday until 5 June and Ms Fairhurst was bailed.
