Updated August 26, A year-old man has been charged after allegedly having sex multiple times with a student at an exclusive private school in Sydney's east. Ben Fenner, who was stood down as a teacher at Reddam House in Bondi, will face court today after being charged with 11 counts of sexual intercourse with a person under care. NSW Police detectives allege the offences occurred against a female student, aged 17 at the time, at homes in Randwick and the Central Coast between April and October last year. A prisoner who escaped custody at Port Macquarie Base Hospital after pushing past two guards was found after being tracked by a police dog.

Experts warned a school that a religion teacher posed a potential risk of child sexual abuse - several years before he was accused of smacking a teenage pupil's bottom and making inappropriate comments to her. The teacher won a High Court challenge against Tusla, the child and family agency, earlier this week quashing findings that his actions amounted to child sexual abuse. Years earlier an assessment by the Granada Institute, a sex offender treatment centre, raised concerns about the potential risk the teacher posed to children. Despite this, the man, who cannot be named, continued to teach for several years until he was suspended over the bottom slapping claim. The secondary school teacher was referred to the Granada Institute by his school's board of management following an allegation in that he was "overly familiar" and rubbed a female pupil's leg at a school musical.
