Elaine McKay, a 58-year-old married woman, allegedly swapped sexy texts with the teen, and sent him photographs of herself naked and posing suggestively with a cucumber and a sex toy.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said the pair had sex after McKay visited his home to drop around a cake to his family. McKay is accused of starting a sexual relationship with the 15-year-old while working at the 1,700-pupil Clacton Coastal Academy in Essex.

His relatives were not in, and the teen - then around 15-years-old - went and had a shower. He said that on his return McKay was waiting in his bedroom, ripped off his towel and had sex with him.

In a police interview video played to jurors, the teen said: "No one was in and it was just me.

"I just said, 'come in and have a tea' or something like that. I made her tea. I got in the shower, I got out of the shower and she is in my bedroom. I just had the towel around me.

"I walked straight into my room and she was there. She just took the towel off me. We just had sex."

He said the teaching assistant pleasured him and then they had sex on his bed.

The teen said McKay had begun sending him sexy texts and messages on Facebook and WhatsApp in the months leading up to them having sex.

He said: "It was a little joke texting and it started from there."

He said she sent him pictures of herself naked and posing in pink knickers and thongs, and he sent her naked photographs of himself back.

Asked by the police officer if there is anything that stands out about McKay, he said "she's old".

McKay, of Banister Close, Clacton, Essex, denies intentionally touching a boy aged 15 by having full sex with him and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. She has admitted causing a child to look at sexually explicit images.

The trial continues at Chelmsford Crown Court.
