A former senior teacher who lied about his controversial past at a Lancashire school to obtain a job in another county has been struck off by the Government.

David Dawson’s failure to declare his position as deputy headteacher of Bolton-le-Sands Primary School in Carnforth, near Lancaster, on his cv meant he was able to obtain a teaching job in Hertfordshire - despite having been caught with photographs of boys in their swimwear, and smacking a pupil on the bottom.

Dawson was second-in-charge at the Bolton-le-Sands Church of England school between 1992 and 1996.
