THIS is the first picture of a public school music teacher accused of having a lesbian affair with a pupil. Trumpeter Helen Goddard, 26, was arrested on Monday, forcing the headteacher of the 13,000-a- year City of London School for Girls to break the news to parents in an emergency text message. Miss Goddard has been released on bail but City of London police are trawling through her mobile phone records searching for any evidence of improper conduct. On the schools website, headteacher Diana Vernon revealed it was the school which had reported the matter, describing it as an alleged inappropriate relationship. Police initially said the arrest was over a sexual assault, but yesterday changed that to sexual activity with a child. Miss Goddard, who is thought to be on holiday with her parents, was a child prodigy who played at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Her pupils call her the jazz lady. She lives in a maison- ette on a dilapidated estate in Greenwich. Neighbours said they heard little from her except the sound of her trumpet practice and saw her walking her dog. One said: Her parents have acted in a very pro- tective way and believe its a misunderstanding and it will all eventually be sorted out.
