A schoolboy has described how he was left ‘scarred for life’ by a teaching assistant who had sex with him 50 times and told him she was pregnant.
The boy, 15, who cannot be named, regularly had unprotected sex with Caroline Berriman who was spared jail last week after admitting two counts of sexual activity with a child.
Berriman had been tutoring him in maths and English but she contacted him on Facebook to ask for his number.
They first had sex five months into their relationship but he told The Sun‘s Paul Keaveny that they got so close her daughter started calling him ‘dad’.
He said: ‘We would call and text each other all the time and it got more and more into a sort of relationship. Then she started ringing me on weekends, asking if I was going round to hers.
‘It slowly got more serious. It got to a point where her daughter was calling me “dad”. I used to say to her “I’m not, I’m your mum’s friend”.’
Their affair was exposed when the boy told his brother and later his mother also found out.
Berriman was given a two year suspended prison sentence and ordered to carry out 250 hours of community service. She was also barred from contacting the teenager.
She also quit her job at Abraham Moss Community School in Oldham, Manchester.
Headteacher Gillian Houghton said: ‘Safeguarding pupils is a number one priority for us and we take it extremely seriously.
‘This person was suspended as soon as the allegations came to light and no longer works at the school.’
