A drunken PE teacher who kissed and groped pupils at a school prom tried to blackmail his bosses for a payoff.
Chris Naylor threatened to release photos of other staff behaving inappropriately unless he was paid nine months’ salary.
At the event, Naylor put his hands around female pupils’ waists and hugged others while dancing behind them.
A professional conduct panel has now banned the 39-year-old from classrooms.
Chairman Alan Meyrick said Naylor’s conduct “fell significantly short of the standards expected of the profession”.
He added: “At the very least, such behaviour increases the chances of pupils being exposed to a risk of harm although the panel accepted that there was no evidence that any harm had been caused.”

Naylor was seen drinking before the event run by Congleton High School in Cheshire and kissed pupils during the course of the night.
An internal investigation was then launched. Two months later Naylor issued a “threat” to publish photos of other staff behaving badly at the prom on social media unless he was paid off.
He later resigned and was referred to a professional misconduct panel.
During the hearing he accepted “engaging in inappropriate physical contact”.
Naylor, who did not appear at the hearing, may apply for the prohibition order to be set aside in August 2021 and can appeal the ruling.
