    I suggest sending a letter to both sets of parents just saying the above.

    TBH, I think you should say "there's no technical way of proving ownership" and give it back to Heads of Year / Headteacher to sort out.

    Update (since there's more replies):

    One parent has relinquished ownership of it (their receipt/box serial didn't match). No idea what's going on with the other (done all I can, rest is up to plod).

    While that would cause an amusing response, it's also true. Running ideviceinfo against an iPhone (even a locked one) gives enough info to prove ownership.
