A scam is operating which is targeting parents in schools – see below. You might want to advise schools and get them to advise parents of this scam.
We have been alerted by the DFE that some parents have received an email stating :
‘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 - do not respond, and delete immediately.
PLEASE CIRCULATE TO ALL APPROPRIATE OFFICERS AT YOUR AUTHORITY/ORGANISATION
