Covid 19- Free School Meals fraud - Please be aware!
Scam around Free School Meals
Some schools have reported that parents and carers of children in receipt of free school meals are becoming victims to fraudsters. Fraudsters are targeting families by 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 this funding – these links are fake. This is a scam.
Any families entitled to free school meals and/or universal free school meals will be emailed direct with their voucher codes from Monday 20th April and each Monday thereafter during this pandemic. We will notify those entitled to these vouchers should this change at any time.
