Police confirmed they were 'made aware of an alleged incident but are not investigating' because the boys were under 10, the age of criminal responsibility in Britain, according to The Sun.
The boys were still at the school in Lancashire but were chaperoned throughout the day.
Worried parents have threatened to remove their children from the school.
A mother of a student at the unnamed school said: 'These boys are probably too young to realise what they have done. But you don't expect this. It's a horrible thing to happen. One girl's behaviour apparently changed markedly after what happened.'
'We now know that at least five girls were involved and three have left,' another said.
