A teacher who was stood down after allowing students to watch a suicide video in class will be allowed to return to work at his school in Western Australia.

The teacher was immediately suspended last month after a video of a man taking his own life was watched by more than half a dozen students at Busselton Senior High School.

It came just a day after a warning was issued to teachers and parents that the video containing distressing content was circulating on social media platform TikTok.

Kentucky middle school teacher Craig Smith went viral on video -sharing social platform TikTok after he posted videos of himself dancing to find common ground with his students.

The Department of Education has since carried out a review of the incident and said, while the behaviour was not acceptable, the teacher would be allowed to return to work.

"It is not acceptable for any teacher to allow students to view inappropriate content while in class," said the executive director of professional standards and conduct, Fiona Hunt.

"The teacher involved has been reprimanded and ordered to undertake remedial training before returning to the classroom to teach students.

"We expect our teachers to have the highest standards of professional and personal integrity while students are in their care."

'We don't want to destroy a teacher's career'

Despite labelling the teacher's actions "completely inappropriate", State School Teachers' Union of WA president Pat Byrne said letting the teacher return to work was the right decision.

New York (CNN Business) TikTok said that a suicide video that circulated on its platform earlier this month was uploaded as part of a "coordinated effort" by bad actors. The company struggled to remove the graphic and disturbing video , which showed a man shooting himself with a gun.

TikTok video : Australian PM says distressing suicide footage must be removed. “If anyone in our community is struggling with thoughts of suicide or concerned about someone who is, we encourage them to seek support, and we provide access to hotlines directly from our app and in our Safety Center.”

"It's pragmatic in that we don't want to destroy a teacher's career as a result of what was an error of judgement," she said.

"There's always a moment, there's always an instance where a student can put you on the spot that you could be asked to do something that you're unprepared for.

"We have to learn to bring a bit of humanity into a situation like this."

Ms Byrne welcomed further training for the teacher ahead of a return to school.

"I don't think there was any intent to do anything wrong from the teacher's point of view."

She said the case could help in training future teachers.

"Now that it has arisen, it will be part of people's consciousness and it will be something that could be referred to in training," she said.

Students in the class were offered psychological support after the incident.
