Scam around Free School Meals

Some schools have reported that parents and carers of children in receipt of free school meals are being targeted by fraudsters. Fraudsters are targeting families, 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 links for the parents to follow if they want to receive the this funding.  Please note these links are fake and this is a scam.  Please do not click on such links and be extra vigilant regarding this.
