EXCREMENT was smeared over the windows, doors and handles of a primary school.
The faeces – which could be human or animal – was spread over the main entrance doors and windows to Kingsley St John’s Church of England Primary School, Hollow Lane, where the children, some as young as four-years-old, access the school.
Headteacher Ann Griffiths said: “We were shocked and surprised at this incident.
“It was quite malicious.
“It was the main doors so it was deliberately smeared where the children would come in, over the handles and the windows.
“It’s extremely unpleasant.
“They have thrown the equipment around the play area and left a lot of rubbish on the field as well.”
The mess, which was thought to have been made over the weekend, was found on Monday, May 10, by caretaker Dave Smith, who quickly disinfected all the affected areas.
“We didn’t tell the children the full nature of it because we thought they would be very upset,” added Mrs Griffiths.
“We are a very community minded school, there’s always things going on, and it affects your faith.”
Cheshire police are appealing for anyone with information on the attack to contact them on 0845 458 0000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Frodsham inspector Phil Hodgson added: “It’s a horrible piece of mindless vandalism. We have not had any analysis yet but I would think it’s going to be animal.
“It’s too early to tell how many people were involved.
“It might be someone who has got a grudge, or who has had too much to drink or they just think it’s funny.
“If someone can give us a name we will go and speak to them.”
