A married primary school teacher has been banned from the classroom for a year after he stopped supervising his six-year-old pupils to kiss a teenage teaching assistant.

John Lawrence, 35, had a 'stupid kiss' with the 18-year-old classroom assistant during school hours and during a lesson in the nearby forest.  

The Year One teacher admitted taking his attention away from his class of six-year-olds for the kiss in the woods.
