Statement in relation to missing pupil records

A Council Spokesperson said: "One of our staff was the victim of a burglary at their home on Wednesday 18 July.  A number of personal items were taken along with some files relating to school pupils.  We are working closely with the Police on this matter but believe that these files weren't targeted by the thief. 

"We have been in touch 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.  

 "Forty-five files were taken and contained information relating to education welfare, predominantly around school attendance.  The files relate to a number of pupils who have had contact with the Education Welfare Service and have attended either Broughton High School, Granton Primary or Forthview Primary."
