A teacher on trial accused of sexual offences against an underage student told police after his arrest: “None of this happened at all”.

Robbie Brittain, 29, of Old Oak Close, Wymondham, denies engaging in sexual activity with a girl under 16 and sexual activity with a girl while in a position of trust.

Norwich Crown Court heard how Brittain and the girl had study sessions at Langley School, near Loddon.

Brittain had told officers: “She came to me struggling and asked if I could help her.

“During my teacher training, I was always told if doing one-to-one sessions, make someone aware, make sure lights are on and blinds are open, so if any allegations are made you have some kind of proof of your innocence.

“That is part of the child protection policy.

“I always thought I got on with her as a person. She is normally quite open and honest. None of this happened at all.”

The trial continues.
