A headteacher has appealed for callous crooks to have a conscience and return thousands of pounds worth of children’s computers they stole from his school.

Thieves smashed a window to raid Water Hall Primary School in the middle of the night.

They made off with 17 Chrome Book laptops and 12 Nexus 7 tablets.

All were invaluable teaching aids used by the young Bletchley pupils.

Head Tony Draper said: “The thieves are preventing children’s learning opportunities.

“I’m sure the Lakes Estate community will share my hope that these thieves understand the consequence of their actions and return the stolen items.”

As soon as the burglary was discovered, the computers were swiftly disabled to prevent them working.

“They really are now of no use other than to further the education of a fantastic group of children,” said Mr Draper.

Water Hall plays a large part in the local community and police are hoping any residents offered the stolen computers will report the crooks.

They are urging people with information about the burglary to contact investigating officer PC Nick Peel on 101.

Anybody who thinks they know who the burglars are can stay anonymous and contact Crimestoppers on 0800 554 111

No personal details will be taken and Crimestoppers does not trace or record calls.
