restricted, according to the National Association of Head Teachers. BBC
Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning that heads fear children
could be targeted by paedophiles.
A school in Northamptonshire says children received abusive phone calls
after photos of them at an event appeared in the local paper, while another
school in the county says a pupil was followed after their picture was in
the paper, Today reported. The schools want children's first names only to
be published, to prevent paedophiles discovering their addresses, but the
newspapers say schools are being alarmist.
Newspapers in Surrey have agreed, where possible, to separate names and
photos of children to prevent their identification, the programme said.
The NAHT says the Department for Education should back up teachers on this
issue, Today reported.
