Overturned bins, a damaged window and ruined displays were some of the ‘soul destroying’ signs met by primary school teachers.
Vandals twice targeted Reffley Primary School over the Christmas holidays with intruders climbing onto the flat roof of the sports hall and damaging a window during the latest incident on Monday, January 6.
Headteacher Pam Foskett said: “It is soul destroying as we invest so much of our time and resources to improve the environment for the children and then someone has done this. The only people the vandalism really affects are the children and is they who miss out.”
Staff returning to school on January 2 were greeted by the sight of overturned picnic tables with bins emptied and taken part.
Vandals had also taken down the netball posts and separated the different parts before leaving them on the playground.
An outdoor display was also damaged during this incident.
Five days later staff discovered that vandals had forced open a window on the sports hall and thrown a piece of guttering through.
Miss Foskett said the caretaker and staff had given up their time to clear up the site.
She is also asking if anyone sees anything suspicious on the school site to contact the police to prevent further problems.
