Female teacher who sent 3k sexual messages to pupil, 15, will never apologise

A teacher who sent thousands of sexual messages to a teenage boy has refused to apologise for her actions.

Ellen Cadman-Smith, 24, sent the 15-year-old pupil 3,000 messages in just two months with many of the messages of a sexual nature.

In one text, she told the teen: “I think I'm falling for you". In another she said she was "thinking about him non-stop".

The mum-of-one admitted she was “half-naked” in some texts that were read to a jury, saying: “I can’t have you and you know why.”

The school worker stunningly refused to apologise when The Sun confronted her at her home in Sandown, Isle of Wight.

When asked if she wanted to say sorry to her victim, she looked up at her fiancé Dean May who was with her at that time told reporters: "There will never be an apology."

Cadman-Smith's actions were revealed when the boy's mother found the messages on his phone and subsequently contacted the police.

The 24-year-old was then charged with engaging in sexual communication with a child but was deemed "not mentally fit enough" to either enter a plea or stand trial.

She was a mentor at the Cowes Enterprise College since 2017 and was responsible for supporting pupils with "behavioural, mental health and learning difficulties" at the time of the offence, the Isle of Wight Crown Court heard.

The court also heard she and her victim developed a connection after she started supporting him as they kept their "relationship" secret.

Prosecuting, Mary Aspinall-Miles said: "[The boy] started accessing her services. They were covering up their behaviour at school… they thought they were in some kind of relationship.

"She told the boy she 'had feelings' for him but that she couldn't 'have him.'"

Cadman-Smith told the boy: "OMG, I'm falling for you and thinking about things I probably shouldn't [winking face emoji.]"

The jury heard the teen and Cadman-Smith would regularly "meet up in her" car with further messages revealing she told the boy she was "half-naked while messaging" him.

The jury found that Cadman-Smith did engage in sexual communication with a child as Judge Susan Evans KC imposed a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order on her.

She must not use social media to contact a child under the age of 16 other than her immediate family members and is not allowed to delete her search history.

Cadman-Smith will also be placed on the Sex Offenders' Register for five years as well as being barred from working with children.
