A primary school head has threatened to shop parents to social services if they allow his pupils to use Facebook and other networking sites.
Paul Woodward is concerned that youngsters who use the sites risk being exposed to porn and online grooming.
He has warned parents that persistently letting children flout Facebook’s 13-plus age rule could warrant investigation by child protection teams.
He estimates that at least 60 per cent of the 270-plus children at his school in the Forest of Dean have access to social networking sites.
Pupils at St Whites School range from four to 11 years old.
Mr Woodward, a branch secretary for the National Association of Head Teachers, the country’s biggest heads’ union, yesterday demanded a ban on children setting up social media accounts – because of the risk of accessing inappropriate material.
Internet companies and the Government must do more to protect impressionable children, he said.
