A teacher at a West Auckland school has been stood down and police are investigating over complaints involving children.

The Ministry of Education confirmed this afternoon that it was aware of the issue and had become involved.

"We have been advised that a teacher has been stood down and we are supporting the teachers and pupils at the school," a statement said.

RadioLive earlier reported parents were called to an urgent meeting about the teacher.

A letter was sent to parents saying they would be briefed by the school board and Child, Youth and Family about the situation.

The radio station said it understood police were investigating complaints made by past and current students at the primary school.

The ministry did not name the school.

Police said it was too early in the inquiry to comment.
