Teacher allowed to work at Bradford school despite misconduct probe into classroom swearing and love-rat advice to pupils

BRADFORD education chiefs will "raise concerns" with the government after it emerged a former supply teacher at a local school had a pending professional conduct hearing that the school did not know about.
Until earlier this month, Vasim Shabir was working as a supply teacher in Hanson School inSwain House. However, while teaching there he was awaiting a disciplinary hearing relating to his time spent at Vale Academy in North Lincolnshire.
The results of the hearing were published in on March 1, and he was found guilty of professional misconduct and was banned from teaching indefinitely.
Bradford Council said it had no knowledge of the allegations against him, or that he was the subject of an upcoming professional conduct panel, and plan to ask national education bodies how someone in his position was able to carry on working.
The panel heard that between October 2011 and November 2012, while he was an RE teacher at Vale Academy in Brigg, Mr Shabir had called pupils with learning disabilities "weirdos," gave pupils advice on how to have more than one girlfriend and get away with it, and tried to get students to change the evidence they were going to give to the panel.
They also found that he swore in class and acted in an intimidating manner to a female colleague.
The findings say Mr Vasir spoke to pupils about his love life, telling them he was a "player" who hated his wife and needed multiple phones because of all the women he was seeing.
He was found to have used the word “s**t” in class “on more than one occasion” and one pupil told the panel “he used the f word quite regularly.” Another pupil had claimed he told them “if you insult me like that again in front of a member of staff I will f***ing come and find you.”
Mr Vasir, 34, did not attend the panel.
