A female teacher who took part in a four-person orgy with a sixth form girl during a two-year affair has been banned from the classroom for life.

Francoise Jenkins (45), a mother who was in a heterosexual relationship with one of the men who took part in the sex sessions, later paid him £13,000 (€15,000) "silence money" after they split up.

The Telegraph reports that Jenkins befriended the pupil, described as "vulnerable", at Danum Academy in Doncaster, England, where she was a supply teacher.

She seduced the girl after she obtained her mobile phone number from the school's database.

Text messages examined included personal information about the "problems she was having with Individual C", the man she was living with.

The couple and the student first had sex on the night of the school prom.

Jenkins met the girl, referred to as Pupil A, for a drink after the disco and took her home where they had three-in-a-bed sex.

The pupil later told the school she had engaged in sexual activity with Jenkins and Individual C.

In a statement, she said Individual C became more involved as the activity progressed but they did not have full sex as she was "worried about becoming pregnant".

Pupil A was invited to the house another time with a male friend, Individual A, and all four of them had sex.

A professional conduct panel of the National College for Teaching and Leadership found Ms Jenkins guilty of "unacceptable professional conduct" and "conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute".

"Pupil A describes how she had sex with Individual A but cried and had asked for it to stop as she did not want to have sex with a man," teacher panellist Dr Robert Cawley said.

Jenkins said her attempted payment to Individual C was motivated by buying him out of the house they had shared, but the panel did not believe her.

The relationship began in April 2007 and lasted for almost two years, the hearing was told.
