A HEAD has been banned from teaching for groping a dinner lady.
Mike Stobard, 61, squeezed her bottom and put his hand between her legs as she filled a fridge.
The sex pest also touched a teacher’s backside on two occasions.
When the pair reported him, Stobard denied it.
But the Teaching Regulation Agency found him guilty of the attacks in 2015 and 2016 at £30,000-a-year special needs Belmont School in Rossendale, Lancs.
He was given a minimum two-year class ban by the panel in Coventry.
The panel ruled his behaviour amounted to misconduct of a “serious nature” which fell “significantly short of the standards expected.
Signing off on the ban, civil servant Alan Meyrick said: “Since Mr Stobart had not engaged with these proceedings, he had deprived himself of the opportunity to show remorse or insight.
“In my judgement, the lack of remorse or insight means that there is some risk of the repetition of this behaviour.”
They ruled he displayed “inappropriate sexual behaviour” that was serious misconduct.
The school said Stobard had been axed.

A school spokesman told The Sun: “Belmont School takes matters of this nature very seriously and as soon as these misconduct allegations against Mr Stobart were notified to management they were immediately investigated.
“Mr Stobart was dismissed from his employment as a result of the disciplinary hearing that followed.
“The matter was subsequently reported to the Disclosure and Barring Service and the TRA for their consideration.”
