A HEADTEACHER has written to parents after pupils were heard using catchphrases from comedy show Little Britain in the playground.
Lynn Hargreaves, headmistress of Hildenborough Church of England Primary School in Tonbridge, Kent, said she believed some of the words used in the hit BBC sketch show were "inappropriate" for a primary school.
The programme features characters such as teenage delinquent Vicky Pollard who uses phrases such as "yeah but no but yeah" and Daffyd who wears tight rubber outfits and is known as "the only gay in the village".
Writing in a school newsletter, Mrs Hargreaves said: "I have had staff up in arms, not only because they felt the content was close to the edge, but also because a number of children watched this after the watershed and were full of it.
"I know it is difficult ... but it is one more thing that does not help us maintain the standards we know you both expect and welcome from us."
A BBC spokeswoman said: "Little Britain is scheduled after the 9pm watershed as it is aimed at an adult audience.
"After 9pm, parents and carers have to decide what they think is appropriate viewing for their individual household."
