Free School Meal scams - The Academy has been made aware of a scam that is being targeted at those in receipt of free school meals.
Some Schools have already 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 this funding– these links are fake. Neither the Department For Education nor the academy will ask you for this sort of information via text, e-mail or phone call.
