Pupil files stolen from Edinburgh City Council worker’s home

Parents and carers may have heard of the theft of school records over the summer. Just to clarify what is known about this, here is the text of the report by BBC News online, from 19 July, 2012.

“An investigation has been launched after 45 school pupil files were stolen from an Edinburgh City Council worker’s home.

The files relate to pupils at Broughton High School, Granton Primary and Forthview Primary who have had contact with the Education Welfare Service.

The files were stolen during a burglary on Wednesday.

The council said the files were “predominantly” about school attendance.

An Edinburgh City Council spokeswoman told the BBC Scotland news website: “We are working closely with the police on this matter but believe that these files weren’t targeted by the thief.

‘We are making contact with all the families this information relates to and have made staff available to them to help with any questions or concerns they may have’.”
