The teacher shows 11-year-olds a video of razor-covered sex toys and Jesus reading a Playboy

The teacher showed a class of 11-year-olds a video with a cartoon sex toy covered with razor blades and Jesus reading Playboy magazine during a religion class.

The four-minute video, which also included regular swearing, was shown to 7th graders at Excel Academy in Sneyd Green in Stoke-on-Trent on Friday.

The animation, which “explains” how various religious symbols came into being, included two cartoon characters discussing the Taoist symbol “yin and yang” and what they perceived as the best and worst things in the world imaginable.

However, one of the characters then describes how a grilled cheese sandwich is best before using a sex toy covered with razor blades as a depiction of something “bad”.

The school said the video on YouTube was shown to the classroom by a substitute teacher who inadvertently used the wrong link, and made sure it had been flagged “inappropriate” and would not be reused.

However, River Maddocks claims that the teacher told the class before showing the video that it contained offensive language.

The first vulgar expression appears on the screen after 13 seconds, then the video shows a picture of Jesus reading Playboy magazine seven seconds later.

River, 11, said he was ‘shocked’ to watch the video and describe how most of the class laughed all the time.

He added: “We conducted a review for the RE test and made religious symbols. The teacher, who is not our normal teacher, said he had a video to show us if we needed help.

“I was shocked to see it. All the other children laughed. That really doesn’t work for school. “

River scribbled the title of the video so he could show it to his parents after school.

His father, Eden, 57, said: “When he mentioned it, I was angry, but when we sat and watched, it was even worse than I thought.

“The world goes like a banana if it can be shown at school.”

The swearing video, released by the Sam O’Nell Academy on YouTube, is called Where Religious Symbols Come From – That Happened Thursday and contains stick figures that “explain” where the symbols adopted by various world religions come from.

River’s mother, Leah, 47, said she was ‘satisfied’ when she first saw it.

She added: “When River first told us about it, we thought he had to exaggerate, but when we watched it, it was even worse than we thought.

“The one who decided to show it in the lesson didn’t have to follow it properly in advance.

“It’s not just bad language or the fact that it’s offensive to any faith – there’s a cartoon part of something they shouldn’t even know about at their age.

“It simply came to our notice then. I don’t think it’s appropriate to be shown to any age group at school. ”

A spokesman for the Alpha Academies Trust, which runs the school, said: “The supply teacher used an incorrect link to a video that was flagged as inappropriate and will not be reused.

“Stricter controls will be carried out to ensure that this does not happen again.”
