Paul Hunt found the note in his 10-year old's bag
Paul Hunt found the note in his 10-year-old's school bag, advising him of the child's "inappropriate" choice of monikor.
The note read: "I am writing to inform you of something that has come to our attention and that you may wish to discuss further with [the boy].
"Him and a few of his friends often make up characters, give them amusing names and then they have exciting adventures at playtimes.

We were surprised that the teachers had thought it necessary to write the letter at all
"This in itself is an imaginative and creative pastime and causes no harm.
"However, it has come to our attention that one of the characters has the name 'Wildo the Dildo' and this has, I am sure you can understand, raised some concerns with us."
The letter goes on to say that none of the children knew what the word meant when asked by teachers.
One student reportedly claimed to have heard the word in the playground – a fact the school said it would be "dealing with accordingly".
Mr Hunt, 38, a software engineer from Taunton in Somerset, tweeted a picture of the letter, calling it "the funniest thing I’ve ever read".
The tweet was liked and shared thousands of times.

Mr Hunt said: "We were already aware of what had happened because he’d told us about it the previous day.
“We were surprised to receive a letter about it though.
“He had no idea what the word meant and was mortified that he’d used it and was not going to use it again anyway so there was no need for a conversation.

“We were surprised that the teachers had thought it necessary to write the letter at all, let alone be explicit about what the word was.
“So yes we certainly did have a good laugh about it.
