Teacher put on sex offenders register for affair with pupil moves teenager into her marital home
  • Eppie Sprung Dawson was caught with student Matthew Robinson, then 17
  • Robinson moved into Sprung Dawson's former marital home two months after she was placed on sex offenders' register
  • His parents say Sprung Dawson has her 'hooks into him' and 'won't let go'

A teacher caught having an affair with her 17-year-old pupil is now living with him in her marital home, two months after being placed on the sex offenders’ register.

Eppie Sprung Dawson, 27, lost her job and her marriage after being discovered half-naked in a layby with teenager Matthew Robinson.

She narrowly escaped a prison sentence and is now working behind a bar in Dumfries.

But she has moved the boy she was caught with into her house, to the distress of his parents who are appealing to him to come home.

Matthew, now 18, left his parents’ farmhouse last week after a row with his mother over failing to tidy his room. He is now living with his former teacher and they fear he may not return.

The teenager’s mother, Sheree Robinson, said: ‘We had a normal family row about his room being untidy and he just left. He rang Eppie to come and pick him up.

‘We don’t know what she is after and what is in her mind.

‘I think the whole family are still in shock. You send your child to school and you expect them to to be safe.

'She is a sex offender - she has abused her power and her position to gain the trust of a child and to do this.

‘Given he was 17 when this happened, she should have gone to jail.’

The young teacher’s affair was exposed when they were caught together in her car following a school dance last December.

The pair were half-naked when police knocked on the window and she pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a person under 18 while she was in a position of trust and his teacher.

Sprung Dawson escaped being jailed at the court case in July but was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for six months and given a six-month community payback order.

She lost her job at St Joseph’s College in Dumfries and separated from her husband of two years, Ranald Dawson, also a teacher and the son of former Solicitor General for Scotland Lord Dawson.

But just minutes after appearing in the dock, Matthew’s father, Jonathan Robinson, revealed the disgraced teacher telephoned his son.

The pair have stayed in close contact and she has showered the youngster with expensive Xbox computer games and rugby tops.

Engineer Mr Robinson, 45, said: ‘She’s just generally keeping him there by buying him things.

‘She has got her hooks into him at the moment. She just can’t let go.’

Matthew’s family fear they will become a couple, although he has insisted to his parents that they are just friends.

The pair are currently living together in Sprung Dawson’s house in an upmarket area of Dumfries, which she shared with her husband before he walked out.

Mrs Robinson, a mother of six, said she and her husband had begged the teacher, who they knew from parents’ evenings, to end the relationship following the trial.

She said: ‘We asked her to our farmhouse to talk to her and we thought it was resolved because she said she was happy to leave him alone and it was Matthew’s choice.

‘We now know she went and rang him shortly afterwards. She didn’t do what we asked her and she was devious. It is clear she wants more out of the relationship than Matthew but he has no chance to meet a girl his own age while he is living there.’

Instead of backing off from Matthew, Mrs Sprung Dawson is said to have bombarded him with text messages and phone calls.

She grew close to Matthew after giving the dyslexic schoolboy extra lessons to help him with his studies.


During their secret affair, she took him to a hotel in Carlisle for a romantic trip and attended parties with his teenage friends.

His parents had no suspicions and Matthew told them he was playing rugby. The first they knew was when the police turned up at their door last year.

Their son, now a carpentry and joinery student at Dumfries College, has given no indication he will return home and his parents say he has become isolated from friends his own age.

Mrs Sprung Dawson, who is undergoing psychosexual counselling after telling Dumfries Sheriff Court she had been molested by an older man at the age of 13, was not at home yesterday.

The owner of the Slipstream bar, where she now works, said she had been given as much time off as she needed following the renewed attention over her relationship and had gone to Edinburgh.

No one was available for comment at the house she shares with Matthew.

The family of Matthew Robinson have said they have ‘no clue’ what to do next, and have refused to visit him at Sprung Dawson’s home.

Mrs Robinson said she believed the teenager had been pursued by his teacher, adding: ‘He is a teenage boy and what teenage boy would not have done what he did?

‘We are still in shock over everything that has happened.

‘My son’s future is at stake and we feel that she has got away with it. I just hope that he comes home.

The mother sounds like a typical overbearing Christian fundamentalist bitch. If that kid needs government protection from anyone, it's her.

There is not a person with less guilt that has been charged with a crime, ever.

I can't get over the fact that his mother thinks he's going to come home...

She's a bit young for me, but being hot, foreign, and a bit crazy goes a long way.

I'll never get that mentality. I want no one even approaching my age.
35 was my ideal age, even when I was 15. I'm starting to turn the corner though. Just because I'm getting older.

'She is a sex offender - she has abused her power and her position to gain the trust of a child and to do this.'

No, what she used was tits. Big wonderful tits. Being in a position of power had nothing to do with it.

Also, potential fap-rooner. She's only hot with her head hanging down.


Looks like there's some tardation going on there.

Eppie Sprung Dawson, 27, was found 'unfit to teach' by a disciplinary hearing in Edinburgh yesterday

A teacher who was found half-naked in a parked car with a teenage pupil could be back in the classroom in just two years.

Eppie Sprung Dawson, 27, admitted having sex with Matthew Robinson – who was 17 at the time of the offence – and was found ‘unfit to teach’ by a disciplinary panel.

Although the English teacher was placed on the sex offenders’ register after admitting her wrongdoing in court and has now been banned indefinitely from her profession, she can apply to be reinstated to the teaching register in two years.

Last night, the teenager’s mother said Sprung Dawson had been given little more than a ‘slap on the wrist, not a punishment’.

Sheree Robinson, 44, added: ‘If she is potentially allowed to go back to teaching after two years, what is to stop her from doing something like this again?

‘She should not be allowed to teach again, in my family’s view. I think this comes back to double standards and you have to wonder if she were a male teacher whether the door would be left open for her to teach again.

‘She should not be allowed to teach children of any age ever again as she clearly has problems which caused what happened with my son.’

Sprung Dawson was just four years into her career when she seduced the dyslexic teenager after offering extra help with his lessons.

They were caught having sex in the front seat of her car in a layby after she had driven the boy out to the countryside from a school dance that they had both attended.

A passing police patrol spotted condensation on the car windows, and when officers approached they saw Sprung Dawson and the boy naked from the waist down. The teacher lost her job at the Catholic St Joseph’s College in Dumfries, southern Scotland. Her three-year marriage to her lecturer husband Ranald – the 32-year-old son of the former Solicitor General for Scotland Lord Dawson – also ended.

Mr Robinson, now 18, has since moved out of his family’s farmhouse in Dumfries and in to the shamed teacher’s marital home in the Scottish market town. Studying joinery, he has told his mother and father, Jonathan, 45, that he is just friends with his former teacher.

The Robinsons have previously accused Sprung Dawson of ‘buying’ their son with gifts such as Xbox computer games and rugby shirts.

They told the Daily Mail in September that they believed the couple had been having sex for up to four months before they were caught.

Mrs Robinson said she did not believe her son’s claim that he was no longer sleeping with his former teacher.

Sprung Dawson, who is now said to be working in a bar, was struck off by the General Teaching Council For Scotland (GTCS) in Edinburgh. She was not present at the hearing, but in a statement read to the GTCS panel, she agreed to being struck off and admitted having sex with Mr Robinson four days before Christmas last year.



More...
When a teacher appears before the GTCS, it can either take no action, issue a reprimand, grant conditional registration or remove the teacher from the register.

In removal cases such as this, teachers can be banned from applying for reinstatement for a maximum of two years.

A source familiar with the process said it was ‘rare’ for a teacher to apply for reinstatement, and suggested that Sprung Dawson would struggle to have her ban overturned because of the sexual nature of the case.

The Scottish Government will now decide whether to put her on a list excluding her from working with children or vulnerable adults.

Sprung Dawson pleaded guilty in July to sexual activity with a person under 18 while she was in a position of trust as his teacher.

She was spared jail after Dumfries Sheriff Court heard how she had been abused as a teenager by a man 29 years her senior.

She was told to complete a course of psychosexual counselling as part of a six-month community payback order, and placed on the sex offenders’ register for the same period.

Mr Robinson is understood to be one of a string of young lodgers who have stayed at Sprung Dawson’s home.

She slammed the door without commenting when the Daily Mail visited last night.

Sprung Dawson’s parents, Alan Sprung and Margaret Holdsworth, 64, from Coventry, also declined to comment.
