A TEACHER used a school computer to pose as an ex-pupil to gain access to teenage chat rooms where he exchanged sexual messages.
Ciaran Bird was banned from teaching after a panel from the Department for Education found him guilty of bringing the profession into disrepute.
While employed at a school in East Sussex, on January 28 last year, he used a computer to access an internet chat room during lesson time.
He then used a photograph of a 15-year-old girl to falsely represent himself and engaged in several conversations described as “inappropriate and sexually explicit”.
The panel concluded his actions were of a sexual nature but were not a form of sexual gratification.
In an account of his motivations, he explained his actions were “attention seeking” and an attempt to fill a “void” in his life.
He referred to difficulties at the time including the closing down of a football club he was involved in and strained family relationships.
He also said he had given up working in theatres, leaving him without a creative outlet.
Bird asked people on the site what they looked liked and exchanged “grossly” inappropriate messages, the panel said.
