According to reports, Lauren Cox, 27, allegedly groomed the boy and had a physical contact with him in her car, marital home and his family home – but later claimed she loved the boy.
Cox was the head of geography at the school in south London.
The mothers of a teacher and a 16-year-old boy clashed in court as the former was jailed for their illicit sex affair. Lauren Cox, 27, let out a screeching cry yesterday as a judge sentenced her to 12 months in prison. The teacher admitted she and a 16-year-old boy had six-month sexual relationship which was discovered by his mother.
Cox told her tearful mum “I’m sorry” as she was taken down before the emotional exchange between the two mothers.
Cox’s mum replied: “You did have a choice. How do you sleep at night?” The boy’s mum became suspicious after she had spotted him getting into Cox’s car.
The furious mum told Cox to resign and never see her son again and the teacher agreed to break the news at a final meeting.
The boy said in a victim statement: ‘Lauren emphasised the need for secrecy, which led to me distancing myself from family and friends. She would request to see me during the run up to my GCSEs. I felt trapped. Since it all came out some teachers blatantly ignore me, some show disgust.’
