The same man was seen lurking outside the school at about 10am the same day, before he walked down the ginnel to the side of the building.

The incident has been reported to the police and Leeds City Council.

In a letter to parents, Rufford Park Primary School said: "We have spoken to the children and given stranger danger reminders but not given the details of the incidents or the description of the man.

"We are sharing this information with you so that you can be vigilant too at the times of drop off and pick up."
