A married teacher sent a card to her 15-year-old pupil asking ‘Who else can I be a slut with?’ when he blocked her on social media after they had sex, a court was told on Monday.

Deborah Lowe, 53, is accused of sleeping with the boy while she was his teacher at a school in Greater Manchester, both at the school and her home.

She is alleged to have groomed the teenage boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons after becoming ‘infatuated’ with him.

Her trial at Minshull Street Crown Court today heard she sent him a card with a picture of a woman wearing a short skirt that revealed her underwear.

In it she is alleged to have written: ‘This is me after I found out you blocked me!

‘I’m a mess. You blocked me and I don’t know what I have done. Who else can I be a slut with?

‘I would never, ever upset, hurt, harm or make you unhappy. So please tell me what I have done. Is it my fat old arse? It’s my birthday and I’m so sad.’

The mother-of-two, of Poynton, Cheshire, signed off the card saying: ‘I bloody miss you, love the slut.’

The boy’s mother then found the card and police were called, the jury heard at the start of the trial.

Lowe pictured leaving court. The boy was aged 15 when the activity was supposed to have started and turned 16 during the span of the offences.

Justin Hayhoe, prosecuting, told jurors that after Lowe was arrested she gave a ‘no comment’ interview to police but did give a prepared statement.

In it, she accepted she had been involved in a sexual relationship with the boy, but said it started when he was 17 so she was no longer in a position of trust as he had left school.

Mr Hayhoe added: ‘The issues really are at what point did this relationship commence? At 15, as the boy would say, or 17, as the defendant would say.’

Lowe denies one count of sexual activity with a child and five counts of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.

I think I”ve listed to ml3, boxes and angels, the untitled pita track about a hundred times this week while disassociating. Something ugly is festering inside and I can”t help but feel as if it will soon consume me and there will be nothing left of my old self. I”m at the coffee shop I work at reading the sluts to a new bvdub album. Think Davenport”s drawing for Bertha The Child Flower. // Met this friend a while back who shoots nude photography and did album artwork for Steve Roach and a band called Memory Drawings. We talk about music, Daido Moriyama and eat onigiri”s. Not sure if we”re good enough friends for me to let him borrow the sluts or not. No matter how close you are to someone you should never let them borrow a book because they”ll never get it back. I”ve broken into one of my uncle”s houses before to retrieve my favorite Harlan Ellison novel. This is how you know that you can truly trust someone // Hope you”re having fun in Cali. Hoping to be back there in July or August. I”m on the last chapter of my novel and close to finishing the chiastic circle. Doesn”t seem real that I”m this close. Probably take a while to finish my online grammar classes and finish it all. Do you think you”d still be able to help guide me to where to publish it when it”s ready? P.S I want to send you a postcard.
