A former headteacher who tried to inappropriately restrain a pupil with special educational needs, pulling and grabbing him, has been found to have breached professional standards.
Nicholas Saunders was head of Cwmcarn Primary School from 2014 to 2019.
A fitness-to-practise hearing was also told he had shouted at the child and removed his ear defenders from behind.
A panel found he breached professional standards and the school’s policies.
Mr Saunders had faced six allegations in total, all of which the panel found proved.
The Education Workforce Council hearing had previously been told on 31 January 2019 he had shouted at and grabbed a seven or eight-year-old boy who was being assessed at the time for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
