A local primary school teacher who attacked a schoolboy has been struck off.
Alan Norris previously admitted assaulting the 15-year-old by grabbing him and pulling him to the floor.
The 48-year-old, who worked at Craigie Primary in Perth, was suspended from his post following his arrest in March 2017.
Norris sought to be removed as a teacher at a hearing before the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).
But a panel rejected his request for anonymity, stating that the case was in the public interest.
The GTCS report stated: “The panel noted that the teacher did not deny the allegation and that he sought a consent order.
“The panel was satisfied that the conviction for assault was relevant conduct for an order for removal.
“In relation to the teacher’s current fitness to teach, no information had been produced. There was no evidence of remediation.
“Given the conviction, the fact that the teacher sought removal and the lack of any evidence of remediation, the panel concluded that the teacher was unfit to teach and that a consent order should be issued.”
Perth Sheriff Court previously heard that Norris was suffering from stress at the time of the incident.
Fiscal depute Robbie Brown said the pupil, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had “certain difficulties” and an argument started over something “relatively trivial”.
He said: “That escalated and the accused appeared unable to control his anger.
“He grabbed hold of him and pulled him across the floor.”
Solicitor John McLaughlin previously told the court: “He felt very unwell and very low.
“He tells me that he will be unable to follow his profession.
“He tells me he loves his profession but it’s become very stressful. This is completely out of character.”
Norris, of Loch Achary, Trossachs, admitted assaulting the boy at an address in Birnam by grabbing him by the body and pulling him across the floor on March 16.
Sheriff William Wood said: “Reading between the lines, you appear to have lost it.”
