Former infant school teacher jailed for horrendous sex attacks over 30 years


An ex-teacher has been jailed for 12 years after being found guilty of historic sex attacks against children spanning 30 years.

Trevor Tulloch, of Ashfield Avenue in Moseley, indecently assaulted three girls and a boy – all of infant school age – between the late 1970s and 2007.

The 58-year-old, described as a “violent domestic bully”, inappropriately touched and kissed the children at his previous Highgate home.

The perverted former teacher at Chandos Primary School in Digbeth was jailed at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday for a total of 15 indecent assaults, two sexual assaults, plus individual counts of child cruelty, child indecency and assault.

He is also required to sign the sex offenders register for life.

The trial heard how youngsters were discretely assaulted during ‘play fights’ while others recalled to detectives how they sometimes awoke from sleepovers at Tulloch’s home to find him touching them under the covers.

West Midlands Police launched and investigation in June last year after a woman contacted the force to report her daughter had disclosed being abused by Tulloch in 2007 when she was aged eight.

Other victims included a girl who was repeatedly abused between 1979 and 1981 when she was about 10, and a boy subjected to bouts of child cruelty and indecent assaults in the late 80s when he was aged between eight and 10.

One victim also described how she was abused when she was a pupil at Chandos Primary School where he taught computer lessons in the 1990s.

Tulloch denied all the accusations against but was found guilty by a jury on 20 of the 22 counts against him.
