A police spokesman said: ‘He will face one count of voyeurism and two counts of making a photograph/pseudo-photograph of a child.

‘He is due to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, October 29, following postal requisition.’

Parents of the more than 300 pupils at the school were previously told the incident was ‘contained’ and that there is ‘no ongoing risk’.

Last year headteacher Elaine Viner told The News: ‘In line with our safeguarding procedures, as soon as it was brought to our attention, immediate action was taken to notify the appropriate authorities and all necessary steps have been taken to ensure that pupils are safe in our school.’
