A group of youngsters have been told to say sorry after causing “mindless damage” at a Spalding school.

Two girls, aged 12 and 13, and two 13-year-old boys have written apology letters to Spalding Parish Day School, Clay Lake, after paint was thrown over windows and doors at the school last month.

They also wrecked signs, a drum kit and an outdoor learning area after the school broke up for half-term on February 14.

The attack outraged parents, governors and Spalding’s community policing sergeant Paul Coleman who branded it “mindless damage to a place of learning for young children.”

Headteacher Glyn Rushton said: “Following the criminal damage at our school during February, I am delighted that the offenders have been identified and the police have spoken to them and their families.

“I am really happy with the way in which the police handled the situation, treating it as a learning opportunity for the offenders.”
