According to the Telegraph, a company that supplies music lesson resources to around half the primary schools in England removed all mentions of the late pop star from its teaching material.
Charanga took the decision earlier this year, following the release of the Netflix documentary Leaving Neverland, which detailed claims from Wade Robson and James Safechuck that they were abused by him as young boys.
Mark Burke, director of Charanga, said: “In light of the allegations made against Michael Jackson in March, we felt it inappropriate to promote or share his content with our users.”
Some radio stations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand have banned Jackson records, but there have been no announcements by British stations.
