Angry parents protested outside a primary school after it emerged an 11-year-old girl had been charged with sex offences.

Police were called to the school in Stirling, Scotland, as a ten-strong crowd of parents gathered at the gate.

Locals described the scene as “absolute chaos” and reported dozens of pupils being pulled out of the school by their worried parents.

A community police officer was able to disperse the crowd of outraged parents which gathered at around 1:30pm yesterday afternoon.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman told the Daily Record that a child had been charged with a number of offences, including sex offences, and a report has been sent to the Children’s Reporter – the government body which processes offences involving children.

It is understood that the child is a pupil at the school but the offences did not take place at the school.

One concerned onlooker described the scene on Facebook writing: “Something terrible has happened and all the mums and dads are taking their kids out of school as we speak. Hope all the kids ok.”

A police spokeswoman said: “Police in Stirling received reports of a group of adults gathering outside a primary school at 1:30pm on Thursday.

“The group quickly dispersed and no crimes were reported.”

She added: “Police in Stirling have charged an 11-year-old youth in connection with a number of offences.

“A report has been submitted to the Children’s Reporter.”

Stirling Council refused to comment on the incident last night and said it was a matter for Police Scotland.

The school where the parent protest took place cannot be named for legal reasons.
