Thieves have broken into a local Sheffield primary school overnight on Tuesday 19th March 2019 stealing multiple bikes.
Staff at Prince Edward Primary school arrived on the Wednesday morning to find intruders had broken into a shed on site, stealing the recently purchased bikes.
The bikes were meant for the sole use of the pupils and had come out of the school budget. This comes at a significant cost, to the school who could have used the money to aid the children’s education.
South Yorkshire South East NHP issued a statement on the theft;
“These bikes will now need to be replaced, at some considerable cost to the School. This money could have been used to pay for books/laptops that would assist in the education of the pupils”
School budgets are limited, replacing stolen goods not only affects the budget. It also affects the potential education and equipment that the children receive.
