Female teacher, 28, arrested for grooming boy for sex as school sends warning
A FEMALE supply teacher has appeared in court after being accused of grooming a schoolboy for sex.
Ammy Singleton, 28, from Port Augusta, Australia is accused of inappropriately communicating with a child between November 1 and 30 last year.
Police arrested the woman on December 23 before she first appeared in court on February 14 on sex offence charges.
Port Augusta West Primary School principal David Lawton issued a letter to parents to inform them that Ms Singleton has worked at the school for one day in July, 2020.
Mr Lawton stressed that the alleged sex offence took place with a student from a different school.
“Police have advised the Department for Education they do not have any objections to the department informing the school community,” he wrote.
“This incident does not involve any students at our school and the information available to the school suggests there is no need for any concern for any children at our school.
“Ms Singleton has bail conditions that prevent her from engaging in any child related work.
“If you have any concerns about the safety and welfare of your child, please feel free to contact me directly at the school.”
Ms Singleton is due to appear in court in Port Augusta again on July 20.
No further details on the case have been released by South Australian police.
