Parents furious as teachers mistakenly show pornography to pupils

During the school’s special assembly dubbed the Golden Time, the children were watching the “Paddington Bear” and suddenly the adult material appeared due to failure of the filters as the film was being shown directly from the web.

Some parents of the year five children who are mostly nine years old are unhappy especially when the school failed to inform them until they heard it from the children themselves.

One parent is quoted by as saying, “You do not expect to have it in a school; you try your best to prevent it at home. Some children take it with a pinch of salt but other kids are traumatised.

“We were all disgusted considering the children had to tell us.


“Parents are annoyed that we were made aware by giving a letter to the Year Five students, who can read, so it is not only wrong to see it but they have to repeat it.

“We asked a member of staff if they had even watched the film beforehand and they had not.”

Meanwhile the school has explained that “During Year 5’s Golden Time today, whilst watching “Paddington Bear” we had a failure in our filters. An inappropriate image came up.

“The school has strict measures in place to prevent such images from appearing.”


Spokeswoman of the school is reported as having said “An issue with web content filtering software occurred on Friday afternoon.

“The issue has been reported to the Trust, the Local Authority Designated Officer and the service provider, in accordance with academy procedures. “An investigation is under way and to comment any further would be inappropriate at this point."
