A primary school has came under fire after a class of Year 7 students were shown a video featuring a cartoon of a sex toy covered in razor blades.

The video was played during a Religious Education class as part of a lesson on religious symbols at Excel Academy in Sneyd Green, Stoke-on-Trent, on Friday.

The animation shows stick figures as Jesus holding a Playboy magazine jokingly said: "I only read it for the articles I swear."

It then moves onto the topic of the "balance of good and evil" where two cartoon figures discussing the Taoist "yin and yang" symbol and what the best and worst things in the world they could imagine were.

One character thinks of a cheese toastie as the best thing in the world, and a sex toy covered in razor blades as a depiction of something "evil".

The narration, shown to children aged 11 and 12 years old, also contains swearwords, which left schoolboy, River, shocked when he and his classmates watched the video.

His parents, Leah and Eden Laddocks, were "mortified" when they found out about the video.

The 47-year-old mum told Stoke-on-Trent Live: "It's not just the bad language or the fact it is offensive to every faith going – there is a part with a cartoon depiction of something which they shouldn't even know about at their age.

"Whoever decided to show that in a lesson must not have watched it properly beforehand."

River, 11, added: "We were revising for an RE test and doing religious symbols.

"The teacher, who isn't our normal teacher, said he had a video to show us if we needed help with it.

"I was shocked when I saw it. All the other kids were laughing, it's really not appropriate for a school."

An Alpha Academies Trust spokesperson responded: "A supply teacher used an incorrect video link which was identified as being inappropriate when played and will not be used again.

"More stringent checks will be made moving forward to ensure this does not happen again."
