Hew Griffiths, who was the head of communications at Priory Community School, was originally charged with meeting a girl under the age of 16 following sexual grooming.

The 40-year-old, of Moorefield Park, Weston, appeared at North Somerset Courthouse in St Georges on Wednesday.

The charge was dismissed and replaced with three separate charges, two of sexually touching a child under the age of 16 and one of arranging for the girl to meet him for kisses.

The offences were said to have happened between November 1, 2006 and January 28, 2007.

Griffiths will appear at Bristol Crown Court on September 14 at 10am to plead. He has been bailed to an address in Cardiff.
