Stirling Council has reported several newspapers to the Press Complaints Commission over stories about a seven-year-old pupil who handed heroin to a teacher.
Children's committee chair Tommy Brookes said newspapers which published the boy's name and photograph jeopardised council support for him and his family.
The complaint has been lodged by education director Gordon Jeyes, who said the school had acted appropriately by contacting all proper authorities and informing parents after the incident six weeks ago.
He said: 'The council regarded this as an isolated incident and a cry for help from a very brave boy. Our complaint to the PCC is based on the issue of child protection procedures which are governed by the strictest confidentiality among all staff.'
