School showed children porn instead of Paddington during Golden time

A School showed a group of children porn instead of Paddington Bear’s during part of the day known as Golden Time. Teachers at Croft Academy in Walsall, West Midlands, explained that there had been a failure in their filters that led to children seeing an inappropriate image.\

What they had hoped to see instead of watching porn

The year five children, aged nine, were supposed to see the children’s film during their special assembly. A letter to parents said: ‘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.’ The year-5 pupils were watching Padding Bear 2 in ‘Golden Time’ in assembly when the pop-up appeared.

Some parents are frustrated by the lack of immediate action and think that they should’ve been informed by text message. A parent, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘I was absolutely disgusted to hear it from my child’s mouth, to know he has been shown this.

‘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.’

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.

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