A 14-year-old girl has been charged with vandalism after parts of a Perthshire school were set on fire and a brick thrown through its window.
The attack on Inchture Primary School happened overnight between last Thursday and Friday when two sky lights at the facility were set alight and the window smashed.
Police said the teenager had been cautioned and charged in relation to the vandalism and referred to the Children’s Reporter.
A police investigation is continuing and officers are keen to establish if anyone else was involved.
It follows a spate of fires at Perth schools during the summer, which were believed to have been caused by teenagers.
Oakbank Primary and Viewlands Primary were both set alight within 48 hours of each other in July.
In relation to last week’s incident, a Perth and Kinross Council spokesperson said: “We can confirm there was an incident of vandalism at Inchture Primary School.
“Police Scotland were informed and attended the school.
“The damage caused to the building was minor and has not caused any operational issue for the school.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “An 14-year-old girl has been cautioned and charged with vandalism in relation to this incident and a report will be sent to the Children’s Reporter.
“Inquiries are ongoing to establish if anyone else was involved.”
In a report from Tayside Police, which was presented to councillors on Wednesday, officers said extensive inquiries had been conducted into the Oakbank fire by CID and four juveniles had been identified through CCTV and reported.
In relation to the fireraising at Viewlands on July 28 officers said “positive lines of enquiry” were ongoing and they anticipated that those responsible will be traced before the next report to councillors is due.
The blaze at Viewlands started in the grounds but spread to the building, causing what was described as “significant damage”.
In the aftermath of the July fires SNP MSP Roseanna Cunningham urged the local authority to take steps to improve security at schools, in case other vandals were tempted to follow suit.
Ms Cunningham said: “With situations like this, there is always the danger of copycat actions and I would ask everyone, particularly those who live near schools, to be vigilant.”
