We have been informed some parents have received an email stating the following:

‘As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported’.

This is a scam email – it is not from a local authority. Please do not respond to it, and delete immediately.

Read the government guidance which explains what schools should do to make sure eligible pupils have continued access to free school meals: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance-for-schools
