Jenni Miller, headmistress of Roselands Infant School in Eastbourne, wrote to parents saying: 'Our attention has been drawn to the fact parents have been approached by private tutors offering specialist tuition who are not of an acceptable professional standard and whose motivation for wanting to be a tutor might be dangerous to young people. …
