A former headteacher who went on a spending spree of more than £17,000 using school credit cards has been banned from teaching for life.

Elizabeth Hart was head at Field Court Church of England Infants Academy, in Gloucester until 2014.

A report from the professional conduct panel of the Teaching Regulation Agency saysshe spent some £17,855 on school cards on flowers, goods from supermarkets, garden equipment, clothes from major chain stores and music from iTunes, among other purchases.

It decided she was responsible for irregularities in the financial management of the school, using school funds for things that were not solely for the benefit of the school and/or were poor value.
