Officials are examining reports that disgraced former entertainer Rolf Harris walked onto the grounds of a Maidenhead primary school and waved at pupils.

The convicted sex offender went onto the premises of Oldfield Primary School in Maidenhead to talk to a sculptor who was working on the ground, according to reports from the Daily Mirror.

The school’s head teacher Richard Jarrett told Harris, who was jailed for five years and nine months in 2014, to leave the site immediately.

A spokeswoman from the Ministry of Justice said: When sex offenders are released, they are subject to strict licence conditions and are liable to be returned to custody for breaching them.

"We are looking into these reports and will take appropriate action."

Richard Jarrett told the paper that the school has “two forms of security” and Harris had no access to students of the school.

Mr Jarrett said: "We've got a wood sculptor working close to the road at the moment and Rolf Harris lives about three doors down from the school.

"He must have seen him (the sculptor) and come into the school area. He had no access to the children whatsoever.

"I went over and shook his hand and introduced myself. He explained what he was doing - that he was getting some wood from the sculptor. I said, 'You need to go'."

Thames Valley Police confirmed they were called to Oldfield Primary School at around 3.15pm on Tuesday.

A spokesman from the force said: "A report was made that a man was on the site of the school. An officer attended the scene, but no offence was committed. No arrests were made."

Rolf Harris was convicted of 12 indecent assaults at London’s Southwark Crown Court in June 2014, including one offence on an eight-ear-old autograph hunter, two on girls in their early teens and a catalogue of abuse against one of his daughter’s friends over 16 years. The offences took place between 1968 and 1986.

He was formally cleared of four unconnected historical sex offences in May 2017 and had one of his 12 indecent assault convictions overturned later in the same year by the Court of Appeal.
