Leicestershire teacher jailed for grooming boy, 15

A teacher from Leicestershire has been jailed after she admitted grooming a teenage schoolboy for sex.

IT teacher Anne Poli-Page, 47, of Latimer Close, Blaby, was jailed for 32 weeks at Leicester Crown Court.

She had previously pleaded guilty to charges of meeting a male child under 16 for grooming and taking a child without lawful authority.

It emerged Poli-Page had met the 15-year-old, who attended a different school to where she worked, socially.

A court spokesman said Poli-Page was given a sexual offences prevention order, was made to sign the sex offenders register and was also disqualified from working with children.

A restraining order was also put in place.

South Leicestershire College - where Poli-Page worked - has previously confirmed she was immediately suspended after notification of the allegations and was subsequently dismissed from employment at the college.
