UK Parents outraged after their nine year olds were accidentally shown porn at school during a Paddington Bear screening.

Teachers were forced to apologise after the pornographic material popped up during a screening of a Padding Bear 2 in ‘Golden Time’ during an assembly.

In a letter to parents and carers, the school wrote that there was a ‘failure in our filters’ which led to the children seeing the video.

“During Year 5’s Golden Time today, whilst watching ‘Paddington Bear’ we had a failure in our filters. An inappropriate image came up,” the note read.

“The school has strict measures in place to prevent such images from appearing. We are investigating this as a priority, with our IT team, and we will keep all parents and carers updated.”

Parents have hit out at the school, frustrated by the lack of immediate action and claiming they were first informed of the incident by their children – and not the school, shares Yahoo news.

According to parents, the school has not yet apologised and there had been no information given on how to help guide the parents on how to deal with it.

It is believed the clip came up as the film was being streamed from the web.

“An issue with web content filtering software occurred on Friday afternoon,” said a school spokesperson.

“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.”

A meeting is set to be held today between parents and teachers at the school in order to discuss the incident.”

OOPS! How would you react if this happened at your child’s school?

  • It is not something you want primary school children seeing!

  • Well, I’d surely expect an apology from the school. And not to have to hear what happened from my kids!!
