Police seized a bag of cannabis from a primary school classroom where five-year-olds were being taught after a child told a teacher: ‘It's my dad's baccy’.
Officers were called to the school following the discovery by the class teacher near children's coats inside the reception classroom.
A boy sitting near the drugs was questioned after he said the stash belonged to his father.
But the boy's mother has denied the find is anything to do with her family and no arrest has been made.
She said: ‘The teacher found it and held it up in front of my child's face.
‘My son is not aware of what it actually was, or what drugs are because we don't do drugs, and he said: “That's my dad's baccy”.’
Police were called shortly after lessons began at Mansel Park Primary School, in Southampton, Hants, on Tuesday.
Mr Parker said: ‘I took action the moment this was brought to my attention after one of my staff found what was believed to be an illegal substance.
‘It was on the floor in the Year R classroom at the start of the school day and was brought to me immediately and locked away in my office.
