After a dispute at Aberdeenshire’s Aboyne Primary School, a photography company apologized. When parents were informed that students with special needs could not be included in class portraits, they became indignant.

One of the biggest school photographic companies in the UK, Tempest photographic, expressed its heartfelt regret for the situation and offered its condolences to the families who were impacted. The business reassured clients that taking steps to stop future occurrences would not be common practice and explained that such activities were not typical.

Additionally, Aberdeenshire Council expressed regret for the event and emphasized how crucial it is for schools to be inclusive. The council swiftly took down links to the images after criticizing the decision.

Parent Natalie Pinnell, whose child attends Aboyne Primary, applauded the school’s action but expressed disapproval for the first decision to permit separate images. The idea of removing children from their class and history shocked and astounded her.

Humza Yousaf, the First Minister of Scotland, called the selection of school images “outrageous and shameful,” adding that instances of this nature should never occur again.

More extensive conversations regarding disability rights and inclusion were spurred by the issue. Model Katie Price and actress Sally Phillips, who both support the rights of people with disabilities, expressed their concerns about prejudice and demanded fair treatment.

Labour MSP Pam Duncan-Glancy drew attention to the ongoing stigma that people with disabilities face and stressed the need for social change.

The incident serves as a reminder of the difficulties that disabled people continue to encounter and the value of encouraging diversity and inclusivity.
