Two female teaching staff from a Halifax school charged with ill treatment of a child appeared at Bradford Crown Court.

Debra Macdonald, 40, of Birks Hall Terrace, Halifax, and Rachel Louise Regan, 43, of Cousin Lane, Halifax, attended for a preliminary court hearing.

The women - a teacher and a teaching assistant - were bailed and will next appear at the Crown Court on July 30.

Both women previously pleaded not guilty when they appeared at Calderdale Magistrates’ Court earlier this month.
