The teacher, from Wendover, was found guilty of:

-One count of causing or inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity.

She was also found not guilty of:

In a previous trial in September last year at Aylesbury, Barber was convicted by a majority verdict of 10 to two of sexual communication with a child between Sep 27, 2018, and October 20, 2018, relating to topless pictures she sent to the pupil.

She was also convicted by the same majority verdict of causing a child to watch a sexual act by a person in a position of trust, from October 20, 2018, to January 31, 2019, where she sent the victim a video of herself performing a sex act while surrounded by sex toys at a time when the victim was aged 16 years.

Barber had been acquitted of one count of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity by a person in a position of trust during the same dates.

More to come.
