Parents have been reassured about the safety of their children after a former school worker admitted possessing indecent images of children.
Terry McDonald, who was a member of support staff at Hobart High School in Loddon, is due to be sentenced for four counts of possessing indecent images of children at Norwich Crown Court next month.
And in a letter sent to parents of pupils at the school tonight, headteacher Jim Adams said there was no evidence to suggest the offences involved any pupil, past or present, at the school.
McDonald, who pleaded guilty to the charges before magistrates last month, was suspended as soon as the allegations came to light, said the letter.
The school said it took 'the safety and welfare of its pupils extremely seriously'.

The letter added: 'We fully vet all members of staff, governors and volunteers, using thorough CRB/DBS checking systems.
'Mr McDonald had undergone all the appropriate checks before he took up his post, and no concerns were raised.'
