Concern over pupil sparks council reply
GLASGOW City Council took the unusual step of issuing a statement after a post went viral on social media over concerns about a pupil at a school.
The post, which has received hundreds of likes and shares on Facebook, was written by a member of the public over concerns about Howford Primary School on the South Side.
Now the council has stepped in to reassure the public.
The local authority said comments had caused distress to the family concerned.
A spokeswoman said: “People should be mindful before sharing posts online, as personal and often complex circumstances are not known and rarely taken into account.
“We can’t go into detail in order to protect the privacy, well-being, and welfare of our families, but be assured that the matter has been fully considered and the pupil and family are safe.”
