A TEACHER suspended after two students were accused of stealing �200 cash she had left in her handbag, has left the school.
The Recorder exclusively revealed last month that Teresa Cameron remained on full pay at Warren School, Whalebone Lane North, Chadwell Heath, after the 13 and 14-year-olds were kept in custody and had their DNA, fingerprints and pictures taken in July.
Ken Jones, headteacher, revealed Ms Cameron faced the sack ahead of her disciplinary hearing last month.

The two students - playing truant at the time - were seen loitering near the minibus that was to take eight childrren with special needs to the centre, used for kayaking, rock climbing and orienteering. They were held on suspicion of theft at Dagenham Police Station, Rainham Road South, after being caught on CCTV, seemingly holding what could have been her handbag.
The pair were later cleared when it emerged Ms Cameron had not transferred the cash to the minibus, but, in fact, left it in her car.
Speaking exclusively to the Recorder last month, Mr Jones said: "She felt very embarrassed by the whole process and didn't make a normal decision to tell us she had made a mistake.
