UK school’s email gaffe exposed really sensitive information

If you are going to make an email gaffe, hope it is not be as bad as this one – or better yet, take proactive steps to make sure that it is not as bad as this one.

Gemma Mitchell reports:

Bosses at Stowupland High School have apologised after an email meant for staff was reportedly sent to contacts on the parent mail list on Friday afternoon.

A mother whose son attends the academy said the email included “highly sensitive” details about pupils.

She added: “There was a whole host of things – there was the safeguarding list, poor behaviour problems, internal exclusions, details of health problems to do with individuals and there were log-ins and passwords to different teacher platforms.”

She said the email falsely quoted her son as having a mental health condition, and listed him as having behaviour problems that had not been flagged to her in the past.
