The lead flashing was taken from the school over three nights from 5 to 7 September.

A number of skylights were also damaged by the thieves while removing the lead.

Police believe the thefts occurred between 00.45am and 4am each night over the three days.

PSNI have issued an appeal for witnesses and have urged anyone with information to contact them.

They also encouraged anyone living in close proximity to a school to note any suspicious or unusual activity and to contact police immediately.

However they warned not to take action to confront possible criminals - but said that public information is vital to helping local police respond effectively and deal with those responsible.
