Some schools have reported that parents and carers of children in receipt of Free School Meals are being targeted by fraudsters. Fraudsters are emailing parents and carers with messages such as ‘If your child is entitled to Free School Meals send your bank details to the school and they will help with funding while the school is closed’.

The email contains fake links for parents/carers to follow if they want to receive this funding.

Please DO NOT click and follow these links.

If you require help and need to contact the school, please do so by emailing, alternatively, for financial assistance, you can contact your local council.
