Young children should hear about the dangers of pornography as soon as they have access to the internet, leading head teachers say.
The ready availability of explicit material online has prompted serious concerns from the National Association of Head Teachers.

He told reporters at his association’s annual conference in Birmingham: “There isn’t an easy answer, but as soon as children are getting access to this, it’s time to begin the conversation.”
Stephen Watkins, head teacher of Millfield School in Leeds, said: “Children as young as three – nursery age children – access computers. If they see something that shouldn’t be there, they should know to go and tell an adult.”
