Ex-Assistant Head Denies Child Sex Offences

A former Portsmouth assistant headteacher has pleaded not guilty to indecent exposure and possessing indecent images of children.

Matthew Hill, of Mallory Crescent, Fareham, appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court on Tuesday 28th May to deny the five charges of possessing indecent images of children and the single count of outraging public decency.

The case against Hill, 38, was adjourned for trial on 30th September and he was released on bail until then.

The court was told that the teacher had been dismissed from his position at Lyndhurst Junior School in Crofton Road, Portsmouth, although it is understood that none of the charges relate to pupils at the school.

Parents at the school have also been notified by letter of the situation, the court heard.
