WINDOWS were smashed at a West Fife school by vandals over the weekend.

Police have issued a plea to parents after incidents at Blairhall Primary.

A post on South West Fife Police's Twitter page said a check of the school on Sunday had shown that "issues with anti-social behaviour and vandalism" had continued with many windows smashed and other damage caused too.

It added: "Sad if this is someone’s idea of entertainment. Parents/Guardians, #WhereIsYourChild?"

Sergeant Kate Blackwell said officers were investigating reports of anti-social behaviour and vandalism in the Blairhall area which had been ongoing for a number of weeks.

"This kind of conduct is not acceptable in any way and the people living in our local community should not have to put up with the thoughtless acts of a small number of youths," she said.

"I'd like to reassure the public that our work is ongoing and we are following a number of positive lines of enquiry.

"At this time, I'd also encourage anyone with further information which could assist our investigation to please come forward. You can speak with officers on 101, quoting incident 0511 of 25 November. Alternatively, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous."

Blairhall Primary's headteacher, Elspeth Gow, said the school had suffered significant issues with vandalism over the past few months.

She added: "Police are investigating following the latest incident which involved damage to windows and the school being broken into.

"These kinds of incidents are extremely upsetting for the whole school community, but we've had great support from everyone including our parent council, local police, the council's safer communities team and the wider community."
