A primary school in Long Stratton has stayed open as usual following a break-in which took place late last night.
Norfolk Police were called out to St Mary’s Church of England Junior School at 10pm on Thursday after a witness reported breaking glass at the site.
Alison Cullum, headteacher at St Mary’s, said: “Thieves broke into our after-school club overnight and made off with a small amount of cash.
“Thankfully, our burglar alarm was activated and we think this prevented them from getting away with any valuable property within the school.
“We have been able to open as usual today and have not let this break-in impact on the school, or the children’s learning,” she added.
Officers searched the premises and recovered items for forensic examination, while a helicopter unit from NPAS Wattisham was deployed to search for the offenders.
A police spokesperson said that enquiries into the incident are still ongoing.
