A SCHOOLBOY thought his teacher was “joking” when she suggested meeting him for sex, a court heard today.

Rebecca Joynes, 30, is accused of having sexual relationships with two pupils – including one who got her pregnant while she was on bail.

The maths teacher denies six charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child.

Manchester Crown Court heard how Joynes “groomed” Boy A, who was then 15, by taking him shopping at Selfridges.

She then allegedly bought him a £345 belt before taking him home in her white Audi where they had sex twice.

In his evidence today, the boy said the teacher was well-known at his school as she was “good-looking”.

The pair began speaking when Joynes gave him the first ten digits of her number and asked him to guess the last one, it was said.

He told jurors he messaged her saying “hi”, and when she failed to reply, he told her in class: “So, you’re just ignoring me then?”

The pair began texting in a “normal” way at first but Joynes then allegedly asked if he wanted to meet up.

He said: “I remember saying, ‘Surely you’re joking?’

“And she said: ‘No, I’m not’.”

The boy told the court he “didn’t expect” to have sex with his teacher when they went shopping at the Trafford Centre.

But he added: “But it did [happen] and I feel like when we arranged to meet anyone in my position and my year would because she was good-looking.”

Joynes begged the boy not to say anything but he sent a photo to pals of the teacher lying down as proof they had sex, it was said.

A police investigation was launched in October 2021 and she was subsequently arrested and bailed on the condition she did not contact any child under 18.

But the court heard while she was on bail, the teacher began a relationship with Boy B when he was aged 15.

This then progressed into a sexual relationship when he turned 16, with the pair allegedly having sex around 30 times.

Joynes then became pregnant and gave birth to his child despite telling him she was infertile, jurors were told.

She allegedly broke the news by presenting him with a babygrow that included the words: “I love my daddy.”

He is said to have cried and told Joynes that he did not want a baby.

Prosecutor Joe Allman said: “So remarkably and, in all honesty quite brazenly, this was all happening while Ms Joynes was on bail to this court.

“Of course she can’t deny that sexual relationship because she became pregnant with (Boy B’s) child and she had (Boy B’s) child.

“Instead this time she claims the sexual activity didn’t start until he was over 16 and she had been finally dismissed from the school.”

Joynes denies two counts of sexual activity with Boy A, two counts of sexual activity with Boy B and two counts of sexual activity with Boy B while being a person in a position of trust.

The trial continues.
