A teacher who put tape over a pupil's mouth to keep the child quiet has resigned.
The supply teacher at Fowlmere Primary in Cambridgeshire is said to have used the sticky tape on the nine-year-old "as a joke" during a lesson.
"Although there was no ill intent or unkindness intended, it is clear this incident should not have happened and the member of staff has resigned from their post," a school spokesperson said.
"We have spoken to the child's parents and apologised as this fell below the standards we expect."
In March, a teacher was suspended from a school in Somerset after allegedly placing tape on the mouths of year six pupils because they were being too noisy.

A £7.2 million training centre for army cadets has been opened in Northamptonshire.
It replaces old First and Second World War buildings used to train cadets at Yardley Chase since the 1980s.
The new centre, partly paid for by the Ministry of Defence can accomodate nearly 200 army, air and sea cadets at any one time and is the largest training centre of its kind in the UK.
The army cadets were first formed nearly 160 years ago. The aim to challenge and educate young people and to find potential military recruits.
The cadets are sponsored by the Army, although they aren't part of it. Some go on to have distinguished military careers.
"It's not what the movement's about but certainly 15% of regular personnel in the army have been cadets and for reserve forces it's slightly higher, it's 17% so there's a natural pull through but in the charter of the cadets is promoting an interest in uniformed service and mentoring those people who are showing an interest."
Ofsted is to appoint an independent figure to look into claims that three Norfolk schools were given advance notice of inspections.
Ofsted says the inquiry is being put in place in the light of new evidence in relation to the inspections of the three schools run by the Inspiration Trust led by Dame Rachel de Souza.
An earlier investigation which was published a month ago, found no evidence to substantiate the allegations that the three schools in question had been given the dates of their Ofsted inspections.
