Rolf Harris has been put on house arrest by his family after he was given a warning from police after wandering into primary school grounds.

The disgraced entertainer, 88, who was spotted waving at young pupils on Tuesday, has been ordered by his family to not leave the house without permission.

Harris was handed a police warning after staff told him to leave Oldfield Primary School in Maidenhead, Berkshire after he stood chatting to a wood sculptor.

His daughter Bindi Nicholls, 54, who has desperately been trying to restore his image after he was jailed for indecently assaulting girls, says it is a ‘PR disaster’.

A family friend told the Daily Star Sunday that there is a lot of ‘upset’ in the Harris family household.

They said: ‘Bindi is beside herself as she’s been working so hard on all of the upcoming books and a documentary to try to sell the good side of her dad.

Harris is now under ‘house arrest’ and has to ask for permission from his management team to leave the house.

Headteacher Richard Jarrett said he ordered the disgraced Australian former TV star, who was released from HM Prison Stafford in 2017, to leave the school grounds.

The source said: ‘The family are flabbergasted that he would do such a thing and be so brazen, given the background.

‘They think he’s still living on “Planet Rolf” and thinks he’s well recognised and in good favour.’

The Ministry of Justice confirmed they were investigating but refused to rule out whether Harris faces a recall to prison when pressed by MailOnline.

Sentencing Council guidelines state that a breach of licence by a sex offender carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a minimum of six months in custody or a fine.

Thames Valley Police 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 and advice has been given to the man involved.’

An MoJ spokesman told MailOnline it will take ‘appropriate action’, adding: ‘Sex offenders are subject to strict licence conditions upon release and enforcement action if they breach them’.

Headteacher, Mr Jarrett, was forced to make a statement outside the school after the pictures emerged.

 He said: ‘In line with our standard procedures, an uninvited individual was asked to leave the outer perimeter of the school site yesterday, which he did without delay.

‘At no time did any of our pupils come into contact with the individual nor was the individual invited by us on to the school grounds.

‘As a precaution, this incident has been reported to Thames Valley Police.’

 The school is located just a few hundred yards from the riverside home of the former entertainer which he shares with his wife Alwen.

Parents of children attending the school said they were ‘stunned’ to see the photographs of disgraced TV personality outside the school.

But neighbours defended Harris and said he was an ‘asset to the area’.

Harris was convicted of 12 indecent assaults at London’s Southwark Crown Court in June 2014, one on an eight-year-old autograph hunter, two on girls in their early teens, and a catalogue of abuse against his daughter’s friend over 16 years.

He was jailed for five years and nine months, but released from HMP Stafford in May 2017 after serving less than half the sentence.

Daughter Bindi has revealed plans to pen a tell-all book about life with her father after sticking with him throughout his prison term and trial.
