A teacher has been allowed to carry on teaching after failing to tell education bosses her teacher husband was having an affair with a 17-year-old pupil.
Jane and Bryan Schalch, aged 39 and 42, were both teachers at a prestigious independent school in Warwick when Mr Schalch began an affair with the teenager - who he had been tutoring on a private basis.
He kissed the girl in clandestine meetings in a supermarket car park, eventually inviting her back to his £480,000 marital home in Moreton Morrell, Warwickshire, where they had sex three times.

Mrs Schalch discovered the affair in November 2015 when she came home to find the girl pupil in her underwear in the guest bedroom of their marital home.
Her husband said they had been involved in a sexual relationship since September 2015 and that she was 18 years old - when in fact she had not yet had her 18th birthday.
After the discovery, Mr Schalch promised he would have no further contact with the teenager - although he did unbeknownst to his wife until March 2016.
But Mrs Schalch, who was a teacher at Warwick junior school, failed to take appropriate action and did not report the affair to the school or local education authority so as to safeguard the pupil.
She admitted the offence when she appeared before the Teaching Regulation Authority.
